Hand Made Electric Basses

My standard model basses are shown below, all with spec sheets as well as full descriptions. These are available for purchase as shown for the prices shown, or you can have me give you a quote for any custom work that you would like. I can take the standard model and change anything to match the look or sound that you are looking for. Wood selection, electronics, pickups, bridges, tailpieces, and finish are all customisable options available to you. For a custom quote on an instrument please call me at 480-215-2739 so we can discuss the design idea as well as any price difference that changes may cause. I build all my instruments from scratch, so what better way to buy a new bass than to buy the exact instrument you want that is completely custom tailored to your exact specifications. No one knows what you want better than you do, and I can make it yours.
