Cameron Dawson, hip young bassist with the superb soulful, groove based UK act MAMAS GUN LOVES his Bass Collection...

"I was surprised by the brilliant playability of my Bass Collection instruments. They're light, with a classic vibe and a great sound...

I really dig these basses!"

Cam is using a Power Bass, a pair of fretted and fretless Jives plus a Bass Centre Frankenstein bass for stage and studio work.

Single Pickup Perfection!

Inspired by a healthy obsession with vintage basses from the swinging 60's & informed by The Bass Centre's communication with professional players & customers throughout the World, a truly iconic design has been re-imagined to blend period accurate looks & a classic sound with a modern, light weight construction & a super fast, satin finish neck.

  • New, light weight, balanced body contour
  • Vintage spec pickup
  • Classic colours & pickguards
  • Chrome "Ashtray" bridge cover
  • "Super Slim 60's" neck profile

With its cool retro features, authentic tone, superb build quality, flawless finish & expert set-up, The Power Bass is an affordable, pro-grade instrument that represents astonishing value for money & is genuinely regarded as being consistent with instruments three times the price.
