Welcome to Drake Custom Bass

My name is Andrew Drake and I build handmade, custom bass guitars to customer specifications.  I specialize in 33 inch scale and 32 inch scale bass guitars as well as one off customer designed instruments.  I started building in 2005 an opened Drake Custom in 2010.

Drake instruments are true handcrafted instruments as I build each instrument with basic power and hand tools.   Customers can literally chose every specification of the build from the body shape and neck carve, to electronics and hardware .  I do not claim to build show pieces, but instruments made to enhance the performance of the active musician.

I strive to work with the customer to create an instrument that surpasses their expectations.  An instrument that performs well and feels natural in their hands.  An instrument that they will be proud to own.  In doing so, each customer gets my utmost attention and receives great customer service during and after the build.

Please check out my Gallery section to see a sampling of my work. I have current projects under way in the “Featured Builds” section. There you can see progress being made on customer builds.

Interested parties can contact me via the “Info” page.
Thanks for looking,
Andrew Drake
