Iris 022908

This is Iris, a bass I originally built early in 2008 to use with a project I was playing with. I did eventually sell her off as a used bass.  Recently her third owner sent her to me to have some updates such as a logo and a new body shape.

She has a 3 piece neck made out of quarter sawn Hard Maple with a Walnut stringer down the center. Her 35 inch scale Wenge fret board has 21 frets and her peg head is laminated with Maccasar Ebony front and back. I had Rosie add a script style Drake logo as I felt that it looked best on this type of peg head.  The neck is finished in a fast feeling oil varnish.

Her body is of a single piece of Swamp Ash.  I modified a Model 9 shape to accommodate her longer scale.  I finished the body in a natural colored lacquer.

This bass has EMG jazz pickups and a two band BTC preamp for electronics package.

Very light in weight and is under 8 pounds.
