Jazzy bass

This was commissioned by a chap named Hugh who wanted a Jazz bass style but with top end components and a restrained and stylish natural finish.   The neck is a traditional style maple job with rosewood fretboard and skunk stripe.

The body is one piece English ash which has some stunning grain patterns and is perfect for a natural danish oil finish.

tuners and bridge are by Schaller and pickups are noiseless DiMarzio.

This what the new owner had to say:

“I find this a great bass to play for both rock and jazz music. It is a beautifully weighted and balanced bass, built as it is along the lines of a Fender Jazz, but with a custom shape and a beautiful grain and lacquered finish. A joy to play and record with.”
