Yeah. That looks like no joke. Wow.

 

Lots of tasty wood. Nice electronics and hardware.

 

Yes, yet another option.

 

Besides reading through the website, Cliff, what else do you have going on? How many basses are you making a year? What's the pricerange? What's your favorite?

 

Inquiring minds want to know. ;)

I have a new "acoustic design" for the electric bass in the works which will probably debut

in Bass Player.

I make between 12 and 15 basses a year.

My favorite bass is Always the one I'm

working at the time, I guess I get a

little involved in my work. :)

They're so pretty, Oh so pretty,

They inspired me into a song, so that puts them pretty high up on the list.

SCHWEEEEET

For those who believe, no explanation is necessary. For those who do not, none will suffice.

I've been waiting for the opportunity.

I've made straight 38" scale basses in

the past.The tone you get,from the lows

to the highs :thu: .It's like a entirely new instrument!

Whoa...fish like that make me wanna swim, baby!

Good-lookin' work Cliff. The just gotta sound like a million bucks, and I don't mean all green and wrinkly, either. What do you get for a 38" scale cherry wood bass with a spalted maple top?

Always remember that you�re unique. Just like everyone else.

It was a 4-string fretted one of these that had me tempted:

Mmmm, acoustic but not...

 

And just listen to it!

Fabulous. (But singlecut only and that isn't compatible with my chordal playing, darn it.)

A belated welcome to Dave Wendler who makes beautiful instruments also, including a very unique fretless bass that I am dying to get my hands on.

I have basses to play, places to be and good music to make!

Oh my, that low end "burp" hits the spot like a surgeon's knife. It's like chili ice cream, smooth and silky on the outside but still stings the tongue like a pack of angry bees.

 

:thu:

Brrrr! I LOVE it when you talk like that!

 

It's got a sweet sound!
