Description & Specs

After an initial run in 2015 to huge public and critical acclaim, the Orange O Bass is back with some tweaks, both big and small, to cement its position as one of the easiest-playing, most colorful and most versatile bass guitars out there. The improvements: immediately obvious is the binding that’s been added all round the instrument to give a premium feel, and the headstock is now colored black for a timeless, classic look. But plenty of innovation lurks beyond the cosmetic, too, helping the O Bass play even better than ever. A body made from West African Okumé wood and a fretboard now made from super-durable Purpleheart balances the instrument to perfection whether it’s played stood up or seated, and with the fretwork and neck moulding retooled with playability in mind, jumping around the neck and funky octave swoops have never felt more natural.

Custom pickup positioning
After witnessing the results of a bass-player friend hand-modding his own bass while living in LA in the early 90s, Adrian Emsley, Orange's Technical Director and Lead Designer, realized what difference an unorthodox pickup positioning made to the tone. The O Bass replicates that modification, giving the instrument real growl, with a fatter high register to boot.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
