Cherry Maple 4 string bass

Post by Jeff Mills »

I have not been on this site for a long time. I love veggie gardening and this summer we had one humdinger of a garden well actually 6 gardens which took up a lot of my "free" time. But man do we have food for this winter :lol:

I recently completed a 4 string bass as a gift for my daughter for her birthday. It was a little challenging only because she has such small hands... but after giving me a few fits that I had to correct with some creative wood working... it came together and shes happy... That's what counts after all.

The body is solid cherry wings flat top, 1 1/4 thick width 13", fretboard sapwood hard maple, medium fret wire, scale length 33 1/4" neck is 7 piece cherry & hard maple. hand rubbed satin oil finish.

Hi Keith, I don't have any more pics taken but my daughter made video talking about her new bass. She used her phone to make the video and had it sitting on the amp, so you here lots of vibration when she playing. But at least shes happy with the guitar.

Thanks
