5 string narrow neck custom bass
This is a bass I built for myself so I wasn’t too concerned with cosmetics, as a result there are a couple of blemishes in the thin nitro, that said…
It’s fairly lightweight (compared to my Rickenbacker 4003), plays well and sounds great. Bridge pickup is a 1976 Rickenbacker 4001 that I picked up damaged. I had it rewound and it sounds awesome. The neck pickup was just a shell and I had the same guy that rewound the bridge pickup build a humbucker to fit it.
Neck-through construction, mahogany and maple throughout with a couple of walnut stringers for contrast.
Two way truss rod and a pair of carbon fiber rods in the neck enable the neck to be slim and still hold up to the 5 string tension easily.
Pau Ferro fretboard with real abalone fret markers. 16″ radius, medium jumbo frets and 33″ scale. Graphite nut.
Kahler USA Bridge.
