Headless neck thru bass

Postby Marko Ursin » Mon Apr 01, 2013 1:44 pm

Here's my latest bass.
Curved bubinga body
Wenge/bubinga neck, dual action trussrod, dual CF bars between 11th and 24th fret
Wenge fretboard, 34"scale, Warwick brass frets
Hofner/Steinberger headless bridge and headpiece
MPU custom quad coil ceramic humbuckers, vol/blend controls
Oil/wax finish

First bridge only , then both, last neck only. The bass needs one black screw and black strap locks, I'll get them tomorrow.

Hieno basso taas kerran, Marko!
That's another elegant fine sounding bass you've built. Do you have a buyer for it or did you build it for yourself?

Very nice bass. Great looking finish, shape and hardware choice.

This one is for myself. At least as long as I deside to make another "this bass has everything I've always wanted". I've made quite a few of such basses so far...
