Jazzy Baritone

Did this one recently for a customer. Warmouth neck that I tinted with blue nitro, I made the body.

Came out pretty cool I think!

KISS Bass build #2

Uncategorized

The second build was easier as I made a wooden template for the body shape to keep things on track. This one was to have the leather patch with studs attached. Customer also requested a boost circuit for the mysterious third knob.

Came out pretty nice, mildly reclic’d. Balances perfectly and plays very nice. Contact me if you want one of these!

Gene Simmons KISS replica Bass

Custom Guitars

A client asked me to replicate the early 70s version of the custom built bass that LoBue made for Gene Simmons. Took quite a bit of research, there really aren’t many quality pictures of it out there and to make it worse, the original was stolen years ago. Mr. Simmons accounts of what it was and where it went change on a regular basis, so he’s no help.

Mahogany construction, 30″ scale length, Schaller roller bridge and tuners. Gibson-style ‘mudbucker’ pickup.

Turned out to be a nice instrument as well as looking the part. Here’s hoping the client is happy with it. Want something similar… or something nothing like this? Gimme a yell.

Burl Maple topped chambered Eman Special. $1101.93

For Sale

I had this burl top laying around for a while, I was going to use it on a high end bass but decided to go ahead with this six string instead. Alder body, figured maple neck with burl on the headstock. 25.5″ scale, medium Jumbo frets and 12″ radius. Two way truss rod. Locking tuners, Bone nut.

Pickups are Brian May Signature Burns Trisonics.

5 way switch for ‘normal’ Strat -type selection. Push/Push Tone switches the neck pickup on independently for the additional option of bridge/neck and all three at one.
Volume is a push/push and in positions 1and 2 gives you the Bridge and middle in series for those cool Brian May tones. Positions 4 and 5 give you middle and neck in series.

So that’s 9 individual pickup selections all from the classic Telecaster plate look.

Bridge is Gotoh/Wilkinson 2 point trem in chrome.

Guitar sounds and plays well. As is the norm with my builds, this is a Tru-Oil finish with a couple of cosmetic flaws because I’m an absolute klutz sometimes.

Shipping to lower 48 included, this guitar is CITES friendly and if you want me to ship it out of the country, contact me.

Custom Semi Hollow Bass

Custom Guitars
Edit: I started playing this one with the band and they all love the sound, so I guess I’ll just play it for a while.
Here’s a bass I just finished building. Mostly chambered walnut construction with maple laminates in the neck-through for rigidity. 35″ scale with a thick ebony fingerboard, 16″ radius and medium-Jumbo frets.
Top is spalted maple. Guitar is hand finished in Tru Oil.
Pickups are GFS REDActive as is the wiring. Sounds really good and super noiseless. 9V battery required. All black hardware. Two way truss rod. Graphite nut.Nicely balanced and weighs less than my Ric 4003. 35″ scale gives the low E ‘authority’.Any questions, let me know. Price includes shipping to the lower 48.
International peeps, get hold of me and we’ll work it out, it’ll be extra of course.

No case.

I built this recently as an homage to the Gretsch Corvette. I always liked the funky 2+4 headstock and cool body shape.

As an alternative to the Chinese-built ones of today, here is an all mahogany Made in the USA version!

Pickups are TV Jones Powertrons. 1 meg pots all round, Master Volume, neck pickup volume, bridge pickup volume and master tone.

Fretboard is bound ebony with medium jumbo frets and 12″ radius. Neck has a chunky profile, feels fat in your hand. Nut is bone.

Cut down Bigsby and a Towner tension bar. Bridge is a Wilkinson roller.

This is a rock machine!

I can build one to your specs, let me know!
