bass body and neck dryingWe proposed four possible styles of stripes for this custom bass. The customer chose the single thick stripe, single thin stripe design. It creates a good, balanced look for the guitar. Here’s the final product hanging in the paint room drying.

The next step will be to apply a tough, durable clear coat finish to protect the pearl paint. We’re anxious to see this instrument assembled with all of it’s gold hardware on. The pearl, maroon, gold combination should make this a very classy bass guitar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
