OVERVIEW

Incorporating the favorite designs of the late Allen Woody of the Allman Brothers Band.

Allen Woody Signature Bass

Woody, who passed away in August 2000, was an avid collector of vintage Epiphone basses, and his signature model has such classic features as a short scale (30 inches) for easier play, mini-humbucking pickups in the neck and middle position for a warm tone, rich Wine Red finish and gold-plated hardware.
The body of the Woody model is a semi-hollow single-cutaway archtop, similar to that of Epiphone's popular Kat series models but without f-holes.

FEATURES
  • Semi-hollow, single-cutaway, archtop body without f-holes
  • 30" short-scale neck
  • Mini-humbucking pickups in the neck and middle positions
  • Gold hardware
  • Case sold separately

Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

I debated between this and the Hofner Club Bass. I ended up choosing the Woody Allen bass because it just looks so cool. Very well made, semi-hollow (chambered, no F holes). The only con is that since it doesn't have F holes it's not great for playing without an amp, even for practice around the house. OTOH, my guess is it's probably not as susceptible to feedback.

As far as playability, I really like the shorter scale. My first bass was a short scale Gibson EB3 way back in the 60s, and this bass plays a lot like that. I changed the stock strings to Rotosound light gage flatwounds, and it's very easy to play.

I like the pickup placement of a middle and neck pickup. My old EB3 had a mini-humbucker in bridge position, and it was too trebly for my tastes, and I rarely used it. This setup gives you two very usable yet different sounding pickups. The controls are interesting, no selector switch, just a volume for each and a tone control. It does work pretty well, and you can get a fairly good range of tone. I think you could use this bass for just about any kind of music.

Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

I've recently fallen in love with this beautiful bass , I've herd some good reviews and some bad personally I'm still going to go for it, my head says theres something special about this bass and it would make a great new edition to my small but ever growing collection a vintage metal axe and a music man sting ray( at the moment missing its sting cause the strap came loose :.| stupid strap.) Even if it is smaller and does have a different sound it will grow on me, I don't see how anyone can rubbish this bass then again... each to there own, I will B purchasing this bass within the next few months. xx much love xx and have a good 05 Xmas!

Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

This is my first ever bass guitar. I am a beginner but having great fun. Being only 4 feet 8 inches tall, this base is easy for me to play, size wise. I do think it is a little top heavy, but I love the sound. I could play "Stand By Me" all night! I knew nothing about this bass but was pleased to read that a portion of the money goes to - I believe it is his daughter's - trust fund. I chose it for the short neck, great sound, fairly light weight and because it looks beautiful! Sad that Allen Woody did not see its release.
