I’ve been making musical instruments for over 10 years now. I’ve been playing for 30 years and was a professional throughout my 20’s and early 30’s. Here are a couple bass guitars I just completed and shipped out to their new owners, both of whom live in Florida.
Both feature the same paint color and pickguard, one is fretless and the other is a left-handed fretted 5 string. The bodies are made out of alder, the necks are maple with morado fingerboards and have truss rods and graphite stiffening rods. The necks are glued into the body. I make my own pickups and they are single coils featuring heavy Formvar wire and alnico 5 magnets for a very vintage sound.
I hope to post several more of my instruments in the future. I have several different body styles and construction methods and have also made electric guitars, lap guitars, and electric upright basses.
