I started making these basses just before the financial crisis. This bass and an electric fiddle are the only instruments I make for sale. They are the only instruments, at this stage, I’m willing to guarantee. They are almost unbreakable. My best year I sold six, fishing and beer money really.
The neck, fingerboard and scale length (1050mm) are shaped so that an acoustic 3/4 DB player will feel instantly at home with this bass. It took three years of feedback from customers and an acoustic DB maker in Sydney for the bass to evolve to the bass I make today.
