This is one of my first batch of "Production" basses. They have a Jazz Bass style except that the body is slightly smaller than it's industry cousin, and it is definitely lighter in weight. More information coming soon!


We have some Alder which we are using for the back of the body.

This is the bass shortly after it was completed.
(4/1/13) This is a beautiful bass with some really nice features. The body is built smaller than its industry cousin to achieve a little more comfort in playing. The scale length is a tiny bit shorter at 33.5". These two features make the bass look and feel much more compact and comfortable to play without sacrificing anything. The woods look beautiful together, it has a Bocote fingerboard and a matching wood pickguard!
