Description & Specs

From La Bella:

The Olinto is by far one of the most unique hand made boutique instruments on the planet. Not only do we hand carve our ​body and ​necks, but we hand wind our pickups as well. We use the same “scatter wound” technique used in the 60’s to reproduce a very authentic vintage sound that so many players look for. If that wasn’t enough hand work, we hand wind all our strings as well. The flat wound strings we use on these Olintos do not deviate from constructions that were used by the most iconic bass players like James Jamerson​, Bob Babbit,​ ​and​ Donald “Duck” Dunn. In our goal to keep certain vintage aspects of our build intact, all of our necks are made with flat sawn maple. One of the few details we don’t take from these vintage style instruments is the single acting truss rod. All of our basses use dual acing truss rods to create an incredibly stable neck. We use artist grade Madagascar Rosewood for the finger boards, and real clay for the dot markers. Norm Isaac, a virtual encyclopedia of guitar finishing, does all of our “pristine” lacquer finishes. With 40 years of experience in finishing instruments, he uses his expertise to reproduce incredibly authentic vintage bursts & colors for our basses.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

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.
