Cricket 0617

This is a great example of my Cricket Bass design that I started to produce in 2017.  I really dig semi-hollow basses for the low weight and incredible tone they provide.  This particular Cricket bass was crafted for a new customer from NY named Michael.  We decided that we wanted to create a bass that was simple but still had a lot of flash.  Michael wanted a darker and more subdued color scheme as well as simple features that are practical and easy to use.

The neck is the standard Cricket Tempered Curly Maple with a center stringer of Purpleheart.  The fret board is Ebony and is slotted for 22 narrow gauge stainless steel frets.  Simulated Ebony peghead veneers.  The body is Tempered Swamp Ash topped with Tempered Curly Maple.  Black binding and semi gloss finish.

TV Jones custom made some black magnets for a pair of Thunder Blades pickups.  My typical Vol, Blend, Tone controls.  All passive.

Hipshot A style bridge and ultra-lite tuners.  Dunlop strap hardware.

This bass weighs in at 6.6 pounds.
