J Bass

Three body designs are available for this modern classic, the traditional and original body shape. Our classic body shape is a smoothed out design with more flowing curves and contours. The custom body shape is designed to allow access to 24 frets with a deeper lower cutaway.



“Versatile & functional”

4, 5 and 6 string versions available with options for different nut and neck dimensions, as well as laminated necks. Bolt on, set neck or thru neck design.

Available in all string formats and several scale lengths, nut widths and necks carved to customers requirements. Hardwearing stainless steel fret wire and brass nuts.

Necks are finished in either gloss or satin lacquer for super smooth feel, bodies in polyester base coat and polyurethane topcoats, satin or gloss.
