Who are Chowny?
The ethos behind Chowny is simple, packing in as much as they can without inflating the entry level price point. Designed in the UK, and built in China, they feature bone nuts, locking tuners and not a single cut corner in sight.
Chowny are really gunning for the best value range bringing serious quality, style and feel at an amazing price point.
Here's what Chowny say about the Volante
The P/J pickups allow you to dial in all those classic tones then the series/parallel switch allows you to access even more.
Each pickup has its own volume and tone controls. Think of it as an "unstacked" '62 Jazz with added series/parallel options.
The maple neck and fretboard have a vintage finish and the high-mass bridge allows either top-loading or thru-body stringing and the body is solid alder.
