Next to my lovely wife of almost 38 yrs, my kids (and GRANDDAUGHTER) and my faith, my two greatest passions are Music and Woodworking I guess it’s natural to combine those two, so here it is, My second custom Bass Guitar. I play it every Sunday with our Praise Band at church. What a joy for me. —-The playing and the building.
The bass is built on an Alder back, with Thuya Burl as the main wood on the face. Hard maple lined up with the neck, with Bubinga and maple veneer accents. Layered between the face and back are ebony and maple veneer. I used a Carvin neck, and their hardware and electronics. Sounds and plays great. Hope you enjoy
