It's been on my mind for some time now to design a new bass, inspired by the T-bird. It is to be my own take, a hommage, not a copy. This is a first sketch. Let me know what you think of it. Also, let me know what you generally like or dislike about a [...]
I have decided to give BeBop and Soulmate a little makeover. For BeBop that means: -restyled body (a little smaller, deeper cutaway for better access to high frets) -38mm at the nut instead of 39mm (for 4 string) -separate batterybox instead of battery in electronics cavity -body 1mm thinner For Soulmate that means: -restyled headstock [...]
From now on you can order racing stripes on your bass. I've bought a cutting plotter to make my own patterns for spraying stripes. You can have any pattern, multiple colors, etc. You can choose any color you like. Ultimate customising. I will add it to the orderforms one of these days as an option.
Expected begin july: the first BeBop 70's!
Exciting news, I am working on a new version of our BeBop model. Basically it's a 70's version. That means ash/maple, location bridgepickup, blockinlays, but...there's more. The intention is to make it the ultimate old school slapbass, for that fat 70's and 80's slapsound. The pickguard shape should be self-explanatory :) We are working on [...]
At the moment I am working on 8 basses for our stocklist. As I started one of them got ordered and 2 of them reserved, but at least I'll have 5 new basses for sale in a few weeks. Here's a picture of some of the colours I have sprayed. Olympic white, shell pink, pharaoh [...]
The first sunbursts that Fender made were yellow stain on bare wood, and then dark brown and red. These were the bursts I prefered and have made up until now. Later in the 60's Fender switched to black, red and yellow, and all was coloured lacquer. It has quite a different look, but has become [...]
Here's Phaedra and her new bass. It's the latest version of BeBop 5, namely the Glenn Gaddum signature version (that is not featured on our website yet...) Basically it's a downsized BeBop 5 with 17mm stringspacing.
This beauty was custom made for Sander Lange. Alder body, maple/rosewood neck, binding + blockinlays, Fralins, silverburst, matching headstock, our dual tonecontrol and fatboost. Cool looks and many different JB sounds available, from vintage to modern.
BeBop 5, abachi body, black stain, 1 coat of matte finish. Looking good or what?
