Pete’s 6 string semi-acoustic bass

 

This bass is being built for a new custom from out East.  Pete wanted basically a 6 string archtop guitar but in bass form.  We are going to have a Maple neck with an Ebony fret board.  24 frets in a 33 inch scale.  The body will have a arch top made of Claro Walnut and sides of Mahogany.  Pete wanted a back made of Claro Walnut which I will also carve.  Aguilar DCB-6 pickups and a two piece D style bridge and tail piece.  We are going to have a custom hard shell case made for this bass too.
