"Exceptionally well built & finished for the price tag... a joy to play"

Ian Glasper | Bass Guitar Magazine | October 2014

Based on the classic, Japanese built Bass Collection SB310 Series, introduced by Nanyo Boeki and distributed exclusively in the UK by the Bass Centre in the late 1980's and 90's, the new Speakeasy combines a distinctive compact body profile with a powerful, modern sound.

All the hallmarks of the original Bass Collection design are in place... the unique, heel-less, bolt on neck, 2 octave, unmarked, rosewood fingerboard, high density bridge design for maximum sustain and active twin band electronics.

  • Original, compact, light weight Bass Collection SB body contour
  • Slim profile maple neck
  • 24 fret, rosewood fingerboard
  • 2 Band Active EQ

Throughout the late 80's and 90's, The Bass Centre was synonymous with The Bass Collection range, with our Wapping store being the only place in the West to feature the complete range.

The classic line-up of SGC/Nanyo instruments still has a devoted following, with numerous online user groups and forums dedicated to chronicling the development of the brand and the myriad of model variations. Notable users include Muse bass superstar, Chris Wolstenholme, who used a pair of Bass Collection SB300 Series basses, both live and in the studio, during the band's 2000/2001 "Showbiz" era.

This bass is a gem
Wednesday, 26 August 2020  | 

I had this bass in the nineties. What I got now is probably even better. Excellent sound, playability, setup, strings. I am very satisfied with this instrument and the seller.
