Overwater introduces the Hybrid J bass
Overwater combined the elements from the Perception and J basses to create the Hybrid J, a model that came to life thanks to Carlos Henriquez.
Overwater says that the project debuted in 2006, when Carlos Henriquez (Lenny Kravitz, Whitney Houston, Willie Nelson, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan to name a few) asked the luthier to create a versatile bass with which he could express his latin influences and “US” style. Overwater took the J Bass with a multi-laminated design, traditional headstock angle and rear-mounted active EQ, and the Latin Model was born.
The project has kept progressing and Overwater finally combined the elements from the Perception and J Series basses to create this new Hybrid J. It retains the multi-laminated design, neck joint and headstock angle from the Perception and the body profile and Overwater “noiseless” single coil pickups from the Contemporary J.
