Bajo Quinto Z

This is the second style bajo quinto that I have tried, and it is based on the Matt Woods dug-out guitar design I developed early this year.  The customer wanted me to use this shape of body and the same peghead shape from the earlier bajo design I had made for him.  This is the prototype for my future bajo quinto models to come. 

The neck is quartered Tempered Maple with Macassar Ebony fret board in 25 inch scale.  Evo gold frets, glow in the dark side dots, and Macassar Ebony peghead veneers.

Tempered Swamp Ash makes up the entire body.  The “Rope” style binding was at the request of the customer, and it consists of Macassar Ebony and Maple wood.  The custom made bridge is made of the same Macassar Ebony as the rest of the details.  I made the bridge so that regular ball end strings are used rather than loop strings, which are a pain to mess with.

LR Baggs piezo loaded under the brass bridge saddle and the preamp has a volume and tone control.   Gold Hipshot tuners and Dunlop Straploks complete the equipment.  6.6 pounds
