Orange Amplification Launch the Glenn Hughes Signature Purple O Bass

Following the success of the Glenn Hughes Signature Crush Bass 50 Combo AmpOrange Amplification takes great pleasure in launching the Glenn Hughes Signature Purple O Bass guitar. Based on the popular O Bass, the new Signature O Bass has a rich vibrant purple finish and comes with two changeable ivory and jet black 3-ply scratchplates and a quality padded gig bag.

The bass guitar body is made from lightweight African Okoumé wood which gives it a resonance that transfers easily through the Seymour Duncan SPB-1 Bass Pickup. The strong neck is made from Maple with a Purpleheart fretboard to give a clear, bright, transparent sound. The Bass guitar is finished with a Chequerboard binding around the body and headstock for a classic, distinctive feel and look.

The luxurious colour of the Glenn Hughes Signature Purple O Bass evokes the 1960’s and 70’s as well as the beginnings of heavy metal. Whatever the music played, this eye-catching deep purple bass guitar will certainly make a statement on any stage or studio, especially when coupled with the purple Glenn Hughes Signature Crush Bass 50 Combo!

Longtime Orange Ambassador, Glenn Hughes, known to millions as the ‘Voice of Rock’ celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Deep Purple’s Burn album in 2023.  In 2024 he will be taking his ‘Glenn Hughes Performs Classic Deep Purple Live’ show on a nationwide USA tour.
