Mike Watt is a genuine legend of the indie rock bass. His work with the Minutemen and fIREHOSE influenced a generation, and between touring with the Stooges and penning operas, he's done just about everything a bassist can do. And now, for the first time, he has his own signature bass: the Wattplower.
We caught up with Watt at the Reverend booth at NAMM to get the full story on the origins and specifications of this instrument. It's lightweight, super playable and clearly designed for a player who demands a lot from their instrument.
