Dixie 101711

This is Dixie, a 32 inch scale, 24 fret bass built for a customer out East. This bass is a great example of how less is more. The customer did not need fancy woods to be used on his bass as his main concern was function and playabilty. With just simple woods we came up with a classy looking easy to play bass. This is one of my favorite designs that I first used back in “09” and get a lot of requests for this style.
She has a Rock Maple neck and fret board with a dual action truss rod and 2 carbon fibers bars for strength. Her peghead is laminated with Black Walnut.
Her body is Soft Maple core with Walnut facing front and back. She is hollowed out inside and only weighs in at 7.3 lbs.
She has a Hipshot A style bridge, Ultra-lite tuners, and Ebony wood control knobs to round out her hardware.
The electronics package is a simple EMG 3.0 Jazz set with a 9 volt configuration. This setup is perfect for letting the true sound of the bass shine through.
She has a great feel with her fast neck and lightness of weight. Her nut width is 1.5 inches and she is 2.5 inches at the 24th fret.
This bass is sold but I would love to build on just like her for you.
