After the success of the Eastwood Hooky Bass 6 PRO, Hooky came back to us for the first ever production run of his original semi-acoustic bass idea, following how he went to Chris Eccleshall decades ago to create the original!

With access to Hooky’s original for detailed research and pain-staking accuracy, we replicated it and created a prototype in 2022. Hooky was so pleased with the prototype that it’s now on the road with him (customised as “Lola”) and we then took this model into production to create the first commercially available version of his 4 string, full scale length, semi acoustic bass.

The scale, feel, and electronics of Hooky’s original were based on his 1980 solidbody Yamaha BB1200S. In his own words, his vintage Yamaha is “a fierce guitar” and it’s the one that’s been featured on every record Peter Hook has played a 4 string bass on. 

For his handmade original, Peter wanted to pair those Yamaha specs with a semi-acoustic, hollow-body bass that would feedback more on stage and that became the semi-acoustic bass he’s always used live since 1982. 

Whether you play this in a studio or live, you will NOT be disappointed with this bass. It’s the best of all bass worlds – wrapped up in one Peter Hook approved package.

Included only in this first production batch will be a label inside each bass, hand signed by Peter Hook, along with a printed pamphlet that has the story of Hooky’s original in his own words.
