Description

Details

Best known for his work with The Allman Brothers Band and Government Mule, the late great bassist Allen Woody, who passed away in August 2000, was an avid collector of vintage Epiphone basses. The Epiphone Allen Woody Rumblekat electric bass guitar is the legendary musician’s signature model, and combines the features that Woody found best suited his aggressive, rumbling playing style.

Body

In order to give the body a distinctively large character, the Rumblekat has 2.1" thick sound chambered mahogany body without f-holes. The combination of dense mahogany with the chambered shape allows this bass to generate masses of energy, forming the foundation of its solid, uncompromising tone. The top is made from 5-ply flame maple, which produces a crisp balance against the power of the body.

Epiphone have gone to great lengths to ensure the Rumblekat looks every bit as good as it sounds. The body top is finished in a subtle wine red finish, with white binding around the edges that leads onto the translucent finish of the back and sides, proudly displaying the natural grain of the mahogany.

Neck

The neck is made from mahogany, and set along 30" short-scale to make it easier to play. Paired with the neck is a sleek rosewood fingerboard, home to 20-frets that feature white dot inlays for easy navigation.

Electronics

To deliver the customary fat-yet-tight tones that Woody was renowned for, the Rumblekat has been fitted with NYT mini-humbucker bass pickups in the neck and middle positions. The smaller size, narrow magnetic field and unique design, means that the pickups produce bright tones with an incredibly focused output. Using a design that includes enamel wire, along with bar ceramic magnets, the pickups retain their hum-free capabilities with ease. Subtle attenuation of the master tone knob, and the individual volume pots for each pickup, gives a substantial level of tonal control. Whether you’re looking for earth-shaking rumble, full sounding open notes, or tight high-end notes, the NYT pickups can do it all.

Hardware

The Rumblekat has been fitted with the highest quality appointments to guarantee that is performs to an optimal standard throughout every gig. The three-point adjustable bridge keeps each string firmly anchored. The headstock carries the Epiphone premium sealed gear 17:1 ratio tuning machines, which work hard to maintain tuning. All gold hardware compliments the Wine Red finish in style, whilst the headstock bears Allen Woody’s signature in gold detail. <’/p>

The Epiphone Allen Woody Rumblekat bass guitar is a fitting tribute to the legendary bassist. The finish is simply breathtaking, with every detail coming together to create a visually striking bass. The robust timbre of the tonewood combination is communicated with clarity by the NYT mini-humbuckers, with deft control enabled by the simple electronics layout. If you’re looking for a truly unique model that matches your passion to perform, then this is the model for you.

Customer Reviews
Bass tones from a artist bass
Posted on 04/11/2011 by nickhardshore This is a fantastic-sounding bass from the artist Allen Woody. It will produce some soft woody bass tones and a nice low end complements the static pick bass that you will no doubt want to do. The bass will play that much loved E-string ostinato and also includes dual volume controls and a single tone control. You can adjust pickup balance between the two mini humbuckers and the tone control doesn’t really get used.
