What Style Stripes Should Go On Jeremy’s Bass?

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

Here’s a prime example of the way we work with customers on key decisions for their instruments. Jeremy told us that he wants a maroon stripe to compliment the pearl finish on his custom bass. The question is just what should the stripe look like? We’ve come up with a couple of options to start the discussion. None of these are likely to be the final design, but it’s easier to see what you don’t want than visualize exactly what you want. 

Post a comment an let us know which direction you think would work best. Of course, the customer will have the final say and we’ll post a photo showing his decision.

Wet Sanding on Sherri’s Acoustic

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

We started the final steps for the finish on Sherri Mullen’s custom acoustic. In this photo we’re wet sanding with 1000 grit using Paraffin Oil as a lubricant. There’s no substitute for patience and perseverance on this part. It’s really neat to see the finish starting to emerge. We can’t wait to complete the finish and see how this one sounds!
