Many of the doublebass players that visit the shop also play electric bass guitar or electric upright bass as well. I'll be stocking more electric basses, ranging from classic vintage instruments to fine contemporary basses.
A mint condition example of the Custom Shop version of Fender's transitional 1955 style Precision bass that incorporated the contoured body corners onto the old earlier "Telecaster" version with the single coil pickup, Telecaster style headstock shape, Single layer white pickguard, and semi-transparent blonde finish over a light weight ash body. The neck is a C profile that I find very comfortable. The bass plays beautifully, has the classic single coil tone, and includes the original case with all of the case candy. It reminds me an awful of of my old 1953 Precision Bass.
One owner instrument that has been well cared for. Alder body, maple neck, Kidney button tuners, Original bone nut, Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard with pearl dots, Three color sunburst body finish, Original pickguard, pickup, covers, One knob may be changed. Thumb rest was moved to the bass side of the strings. Badass bridge with original bridge in case. Little wear on the body, wear on rear of the neck. Great setup, fine tone.
The classic electric bassist's configuration for the fretless Ampeg. Very clean with some dings. Missing the bridge cover plate. Gig bag.
Simple, elegant design and fine playability. Lightweight ash body, Maple neck, Rosewood board, 34" string length, Gold hardware. Virtually unused. Gig bag.
A fine working bass that comes to the shop from the original owner, who used it on the job until earlier this year. All original except for: Replacement Schaller tuners, Body refinished black from the original sunburst (for hotel gigs), Replacement ground wire, Refretted twice, 2 replacement screws for pickup cover. With the original white case, which was also painted black for hotel gigs.
