Gordonimus SG

This is a custom order one-off bass built for a returning customer named Gordon.  Gordon is about tone and playbility and less about flashy appearences, however, I am rather pleased with the look of this bass. 

For specs, he wanted an SG style bass with a few changes to a typical bass of this design, such as, 32 inch scale, a comfortable forearm carve, and a simple electronics set up consisting of a TV Jones ThunderMag pickup in the neck position and a TV Jones ThunderBlade for the bridge position.  The bridge pickup is the neck version and the ThunderMag is basically a reverse P.

The neck is made of quartered Tempered Hard Ash.  I installed carbon fiber along with the dual action truss rod.  The fret board is made of Pau Ferro. 

The beautiful Tempered Swamp Ash body is nice and light in weight (the bass weighs 7.5 pounds) and is finished in polyurethane.   There is no dye or stain used to create this color.   That is the wood and my special finish that creates that honey violin color.

Stainless steel frets are of a smaller gauge.  Hipshot tuners and KickAZZ bridge make up the hardware.  What a fun bass with loads of tones.
