The Supro 2042 Huntington II is a newly-designed, short-scale bass combining the classic body shape of the early ‘60s Ozark model with vintage-correct passive electronics and sonic inspiration from the Supro Pocket Bass of the same era. The unique Gold Foil pickups found in the Huntington bass are authentic replicas of the original “Clear-Tone” pickups found in the vintage Supro Violin, Taurus and Pocket Bass models. These high-output single coils deliver legendary, deep low-end, with very low noise and a massive, broadband sound that stays warm and balanced across the entire range of the instrument.
The Supro Huntington bass is available in single, double and triple pickup configurations with an optional piezo bridge and a variety of unique metallic and transparent colors over a choice of Mahogany, Swamp Ash or Alder tonewood for the body. The Huntington’s maple neck has a smooth, black satin finish and 30” short-scale length, with a glued in, set-neck joint that provides ergonomic access to the entire rosewood fretboard. The set neck design, premium woods and high-end hardware along with the unique, vintage correct Supro pickups make the Huntington both a world-class recording bass and gigging workhorse instrument that is incredibly easy to play; especially for musicians accustomed to the shorter neck of a 6-string guitar.
Although its scale is short, the sound of the Huntington bass is astoundingly large—boasting a tight, confident, buttery low end, articulate midrange and crisp highs. The dual-pickup Huntington II model adds a second magnetic pickup in the neck position for ultra-deep bass and huge reggae tones. The neck pickup is reverse wound for complete hum rejection when both pickups are used together. The Huntington II features individual volume knobs for each pickup with the piezo option activated by a push/pull switch on the tone knob.
