Steve Burke Short Scale Rearview

We just built this bass for Mr. Lenny Spickle from the band SNEW. It is a short scale (30.5″) neck-through bass. The body shape is based on the Burke Guitar “Rearview” model emphasizing the beauty of women!

It is built for ease of play due to its’ shorter scale and light weight. Those items combined with a low action, medium narrow frets, and DR High Beam medium light strings make it comfortable and fast.

The neck is a 3 layer laminate of Mahogany, Maple, Mahogany with a silky smooth satin finish. It has a maple fretboard with a 16” radius and the neck angle is 2 degrees below the body. The body wings are a laminate of Mahogany, Maple, Mahogany giving it a good 3-d look. The body is finished in nitrocellulose with super smooth satin finish.

The client’s signature is inlaid at the 12th fret and the truss rod cover is engraved with the client’s name. It has a large electronics cavity to reduce weight and the cavity cover is Bocote wood.

Hardware includes a dual truss rod, black Hipshot Bridge, black Gotoh Tuners, black strap buttons and a black barrel jack.

The electronics are passive Bartolini J-Bass inline pickups set for 2 volumes (Bridge and Neck) and 1 tone.

Segura Bass Guitar

I was inspired by the profound desire to build a traditional bass with a emphasis on modern line language that would bring the essence of the wood forward. the body and neck share the same wood, hard maple, wenge and padauk . The fretboard is cocoblo with padauk inlays. I used single coil vintage Nordstrand pickups. the electronic is an obsidian jazz bass passive setup. hardware is Hipshot complemented with Labella flat wound strings. double action truss rod. I spend the last half of my summer working on that project after long month of planing. I actually build a wood shop to make this piece. It is my first build in thirty years, not to say it was long overdue. Last time I build a bass I focused only on the shape and I thought it was time to redirect that focus on a deeper level, wood selection, general language of the object, tone, and everything else. I looked at it as an introspection to find closure in the craft.

Candia Bass Altessa

The Altessa Bass guitar is a 34” scale bass that has an oiled walnut body and a five piece laminate neck made of walnut with two Purple Heart stringers. The fretboard is also purple heart with only side dot markers. Because purple heart is such a hard wood this bass has a very snappy, punch feel and sound to it.

The headstock has a 12 degree tilt back with a scarf joint that is barely noticable because the headstock is made of the same neck blank material as the neck itself. I left a substantial volute on the back of the neck, opposite the zero fret to further strengthen neck/head stock joint. I don’t want to have the “authentic” problem of the headstock breaking off which is very common with one piece necks with a tilted headstock.

The front of the headstock has a 1/8” thick cap of walnut, which was pore filled, painted black and finished off with the Candia logo and lacquer.

The strings on this bass run in a straight line from the bridge to the tuner so there is no need for a nut. I used a zero fret instead and extended the fretboard 3/4” beyond the zero fret. I also filed some notches in the edge of the fretboard to hold the strings in place in case someone with crazy strong fingers does some aggressive string bending.

I used medium fret wire to keep the action very low and fast; the only exception is the zero fret which is a jumbo fret. One thing I did differently on this bass is I did not radius the fretboard. I personally prefer the feel of all of the strings being flat rather than radiused because it feels easier for my right hand to quickly move across the strings.

The hardware on this bass consists of a Kick Ass bridge and Gotoh tuners. The electronics are a pair of Bartolini single coil pick ups running through an Aguilar OBP1 preamp. The control set up is master volume, pickup blend, high, two band mid and low.

Kelvin Daly Musical Instruments 7-String Subcontra Bass

Kelvin Daly has been building instruments since 1992, always with an artistic bent. “My original training in visual arts and sculpture migrated into building functional musical objects as I became more seriously involved in playing music,” he writes on his website. It doesn’t hurt that he has apprenticed with the legendary Carl Thompson since 1998.

This week we’re featuring a gut-rumbling bass Daly custom-designed for a player. The 7-string Subcontra Bass has an enormous 38-inch scale and is tuned E A D G C F A. The lowest string, which is an octave below a standard bass’s E, registers at just 20.5 Hz. Besides the functional depth of the instrument, its construction is a thing of wonder. Its body core is kaya (aka African Mahogany) with a padouk stripe, while ebony and hand-dyed flame maple adorn the top. The back details are bocote and more hand-dyed flame maple. Its neck is a seven-piece laminate of sapele, ipe, cocobola, and pau ferro topped with an ebony fingerboard.

Other features include Hipshot hardware, custom-wound Kent Armstrong soapbar pickups, and a 3-band EQ.

Specs:
Scale:   38″
Body:   Kaya and Padouk
Top:   Ebony and Hand-dyed Flame Maple
Back:   Bocote and Hand-dyed Flame Maple
Neck:   7-piece sapele, ipe, cocobola, and pau ferro
Fingerboard:   Ebony
Pickups:   Kent Armstrong Custom-Wound Soapbars
Electronics:   Kent Armstrong 3-Band EQ
Bridge:   hipshot
Tuners:   Hipshot
Other:   Q-Parts Custom Abalone and Gold Tone Knobs

Sparks TRS 2 – Cherokee

    The basics of the bass are the same as the TRS 1, the body and neck woods the same, same bridge, tuners, electronics and neck pickup. The TRS 1 has a curly maple top cap over the solid body. The TRS 2 has a 1/8” African mahogany (Sapele) cap with amazing quilting, glued to the hollowed out Alder body.

    The prominent differences, aside from the semi hollow body and top wood and the binding materials, are the American Indian themed inlays, Hipshot D tuner, the rear mounted battery box and the bridge pickup, a Lace Sensor unit offering more bite and a closer acoustic tone.


    As to the inlays…I have, on my father’s side of the family, blood ties to the American Cherokee Nation. The family are from Georgia, where I too was born. To celebrate this heritage, I chose to use American Indian/Cherokee themed inlays of mother of pearl, vintage American Indian coins and an Indian chief “inlay.”


    The inlay on the front of the bass includes: my last name “Sparks” and a wolf howling at the moon in mother of pearl on the headstock, a Mother of pearl star on the ebony truss rod cover and an American Indian “Medicine Wheel” with feathers on the faux tailpiece.   


    The coins are as follows:
    Five American Indian head nickels inlaid into the lower curve on the back of the body. These nickels are from sequential years, 1934, 35, 36, 37 and 38. A sixth nickel is inlaid into the ebony rear control cover with the buffalo side showing. The buffalo were a food and pelt source for the Cherokee tribe in Georgia. Also inlaid into the rear control cover is a Georgia Quarter representing my Georgia family. There is also a 1901 American Indian head penny inlaid into the Sapele cover that gives access to the pickup blend pot cavity on the front upper bout. One friend remarked that the bass was worth at least 55 cents!!!


    Lastly, although it may look like it, the high contrast American Indian chief bust on the rear control cavity cover is not an inlay at all. Viewed up close, the varied coloring almost looks like some kind of stone, but it is actually just simple wood filler!  I mixed a powered water based wood filler and overfilled the inlay cavity, then sanded it down and finished it with nitro.

TRS 2 – Cherokee specs:

Woods:

1.      Body: 2” thick solid bookmatched Alder, hollowed out with a solid block down the center.

2.      Top: 1/8” thick piece of bookmatched of unusually quilted African Mahogany (Sapele).

3.      Neck: One piece rock maple with an ebony fingerboard, headstock veneer and truss rod cover.

4.      Faux (decorative) tailpiece: ebony with curly maple binding and a Sapele end unit.

5.      Switch cavity cover and rear mounted string ferrule surround: Sapele

6.      Body and tailpiece binding: Curly maple.

Electronics:

1.      Pickups: Neck pickup is a Carvin radiused top bass humbucker

                Bridge pickup is a Lace Sensor bass pickup generally used for acoustic basses.

2.      Pots: CTS 500K pots. Two volume, two tone and one blend pot in lieu of the traditional toggle, which gives me a blend of the two pickups anywhere in the spectrum I choose.

3.      Built in tuner:  “N-tune” internal tuner with a rear mounted battery box.  This tuner, powered by a 9 volt battery replaces the typical volume control and allows the tuner to be built into the bass. When the tuner is off the volume control functions normally.  Pulling up on the knob turns on the tuner and turns off the output to the amp, for silent tuning without altering the current volume level. Pushing down on the knob turns off the tuner battery and silently reestablishes the output to the amp.  I bought up four of these units before the company went out of business.

4.      High and Low Impedance circuit/switch: I wired the bass with high and low Z outputs, each with its own side mounted jack and switched with a push/pull pot on the neck pickup Tone pot. Switching to the unused output jack acts as an output kill switch to keep the bass from feeding back when it is in the rack but still connected to the amp.   

Hardware:

1.      Gold tuners and bridge: Carvin units. The low E tuner is a Hipshot D tuner allowing me instantly to lower the E string to D with the flick of the lever.

2.      Gold Dunlop strap locks.

3.      All screws are gold.

My thanks go to Patrick Raymond of Raymond guitars and David Treude of Treude guitars for the nitro finish they worked on.

I am currently planning on a build video of this bass, as I did for my last few builds. It will include an introduction, a “60-second build” montage, a “Specs” section and a sound sample.

Jazz Bass Custom 4 String

    This bass took about 50 hours to build. In real time it took about a year. I am a guitar builder living in Buenos Aires Argentina. I am 54 years old, and worked in the US almost 20yrs in the musical instrument manufacturing sector for Tobias of Burbank, Broadmoore automatic instruments, and I worked at Taylor guitars for 12 years.

    I used jigs for the pickup cavities, and everything else is freehand. I decided to go this rout to avoid having to make jigs every time i wanted to modify a design… So even though I roughly follow a design , every instruments comes out a little different.

    The bass in question has the body made of cypress from the south of Argentina, and grapia (hardwood similar to maple) from the north of the country. The ebony I buy from Taylor.
    Unlike the US, there is no wood processing industry for instrument makers. I have an oven, and in most cases, start with a trunk.
    The tuners are hipshot, the pickups are Fralin. The pickguard is made of copper sheet.

    The bridge is a composite of stainless steel and laminate of wood. I take a lot of care with the bridge so that the sound is balanced and esthetically pleasing. My target is the “jazz bass” sound.
    Finish is a combination of shellac and nitro.
