This short-scale (30") Allen Woody Rumblekat features an eye-catching single-cutaway maple top/mahogany body design, a very fast mahogany neck (topped with rosewod), and classy gold hardware. The beefy adjustable bridge/tailpiece and sturdy tuners keep you in rock-solid tune, while a pair of mini humbuckers give your tone that perfect combination of detail and fullness. A portion of the proceeds from the Allen Woody Rumblekat go to the Savannah Woody education fund.

Massive Lows!

As a huge Gov't Mule, ABB and Allen Woody fan, I figured I couldn't go wrong with this bass. And I was right! I've had this bass about 4 days now and have barely put it down. I initially intended this to be my #2 bass and to play it with a pick, which was sounding great and I was quite pleased. Then, playing in A and with no amp changes (MarkBass), I did some finger plucking and the bottom absolutely, just dropped to a low, low rumble. The entire sound, tone and attitude of the guitar changed. Amazing. That aside, I really like the neck, the guitar is well balanced and beautifully finished. My only complaint is I'm having to figure out a playing position to work around how the edge of the square body presses against the inside of my right arm.

I have had many basses, from Fender to BC Rich... When I got my Rumblekat this passed December I was blown away! This is the one bass I wil not let anyone else touch! Well worth the money!

Outstanding instrument...looks and sounds wonderful

I am a complete novice when it comes to playing bass (I have been playing guitar off and on for 13 years now but this is my first bass guitar that i have ever played. Because of that I can't give an informed opinion on how this rumblekat sounds/feels/plays in comparison to other basses. I have always played epiphone guitars (el dorado acoustic and 61 G-400 lim edit 1997) and have been extremely happy and satisfied with that company so I wanted my first bass to be an epiphone as well. On top of that, I am a HUGE allen woody fan and all things Gov't Mule/ABB/Blue Floyd etc., so I was very interested in the rumblekat right off the bat. Once i did some research and realized it had a shorter neck (which I assumed would be a more natural feel as a guitar player) and was a limited edition model, I decided to go with the A Woody Rumblekat. I also loved the vintage look of the instrument which would have caught my attention even if it didn't have the Woodshed signature. After placing the order, the bass showed up 2 days later w/ free shipping and ready to go. I was thrilled to see that it looked even better in person. I have been playing it for about 3 weeks now and i LOVE the feel and the way it sounds (I am only using a Marshall 15 MB series combo amp) I couldn't be any happier with this bass guitar. I think the price is very very reasonable and again considering it is a limited edition run, i assume you won't find hundreds of them for sale on ebay and craigslist which should help this particular instrument keep its value (which isn't the case with many Epiphone models). One thing I highly suggest is to buy the hardshell case that is specificly designed for this bass guitar.

Fits right in the band, ready to play

I play guitar and am the primary song writer in my band. When I wanted a bass to have around to craft some bass hooks, I was drawn to this guitar primarily because of its short scale neck, which I thought would make it a bit easier for me to to play. My Sweetwater hookup, Robert Johnson, played the guitar a bit to confirm that it was good to go, and boy was it. I love playing it, its got a great throaty sound (through an Ashdown amp) and is among the well built Epiphones (I've played a lot of Epiphones, and some are definitely better than others). Maybe I don't know much about bass guitars, but my bass player got ahold of this and it's now the "band bass." He's what some call an "active" bass player (plays off the root and all over the neck), and he confirmed that the set up is pretty great right off the factory line (and the Sweetwater techs). The sound, the feel and the look fit right in and keeps up some thumping bass lines along many different feels (classic rock, funk, alt. rock).

Rumblekat bass

I have really enjoyed this new bass. Right out the box was setup perfect. I own a 1968 Hofner and just recently picked on it no comparison. It plays so much easier and the deeper tones are wonderful. Took a few hours in learning the neck and controls but very satisfied with the bass. Sweetwater thanks again, Norbert you day man.
