Olinto 4-String P

Model #: P4-1920

ABOUT THIS BASS

The Olinto 4-string P bass is by far one of the most interesting handmade boutique instruments on the planet. Not only do we hand shape our ​body and ​necks, but we hand wind our pickups, as well. We use the same “scatter wound” technique used in the 60’s to reproduce a very authentic vintage sound that so many players look for.

If that wasn’t enough hand work, we hand wind all our strings as well.The flat wound strings we use on these Olintos do not deviate from constructions that were used by the most iconic bass players like James Jamerson​, Bob Babbit,​ ​and​ Donald “Duck” Dunn.

In our goal to keep certain vintage aspects of our build intact, all of our necks are made with flat sawn maple. One of the few details we don’t take from these vintage style instruments is the single acting truss rod. All of our basses use dual acting truss rods to create an incredibly stable neck. We use artist grade Madagascar Rosewood for the finger boards, and real clay for the dot markers. With 40 years of experience in finishing instruments, he uses his expertise to reproduce incredibly authentic vintage bursts & colors for our basses.
