So in this episode of 2 Dudes 1 Bass Howard Ulyate and I talk about and play my personal La Bella Olinto P bass.
This bass is an incredible 63 P Bass replica handmade by Mas Hino.
The Olinto P Bass is named after Olinto Mari, one of the founders of E&O Mari String Co. which eventually became La Bella.
This is one of my personal favorite basses.
From the La Bella Website:
“Each La Bella Bass is individually handcrafted and made to order by master bass builder, Mas Hino. Based out of a NYC’s Lower East Side, Hino shapes each body by hand, working with only the finest cuts of wood. The “OLINTO” also sports hand wound pick-ups made in house. Bringing years of experience and knowledge to the table, Hino is able to make La Bella’s vision into a reality — a vintage-style bass equally as handcrafted as its vintage-style strings.”
