Electric Bass Guitars

From 4 strings to 9 strings, fretted and fretless, active and passive, here are some examples of my bass guitars.

Yannick's SC4 With Headstock.

Yannick's SC4 With Headstock. If you order a SingleCut bass there is the choice of having it headless or with a headstock. Yan wanted the headstock. He also wanted a lightweight body so alder was used for the 'wings' each side of the through neck which was made from laminates…

Humphrey's Lightweight Headless Syra Bass

Humphrey's Lightweight Syra Headless Bass. This a first. Another version of the versatile Syra bass. Humphrey wanted a lightweight bass as he was finding playing long gigs with a regular weight bass was giving him an aching back. So we decided a Syra bass would be a good start and…

Ian's Lefty Syra Pro.

Ian's Lefty Syra Pro. So what it the difference between a regular Syra bass and a Syra Pro bass? Essentially the Syra has a bolt-on neck, two piece simple body, passive output and a silk finish while the Pro version is through-neck, has more decorative woods finished in high gloss…

Eric's Skylark Travel Bass.

Eric's Skylark Travel Bass. This is an unusual one. Eric does a lot of international air travel and wanted a bass that would fit into the overhead locker of any jet. This is the design he came up with and with the drawings came the exact maximum size! So how…

SC5 with headstock

SC5 with Headstock. The through neck Singlecut basses come in various flavours - 4,5 and 6 string with headstock or headless. This SC5 is the headed version and has a lot of fine Irish woods in it. The top is Irish maple which has some unusual colours in it and…

Syra 4 in pink!

Syra 4 in Pink. So I'll start with what this Syra, along with all the others, doesn't have! It doesn't have flashy, expensive woods. It doesn't have an expensive active EQ system. It doesn't have a through neck or a glued in neck. What it does have and shares with…

Irish Yew 5B

Irish Yew 5B. The yew tree, when you find it, can be very, very old. They are probably the oldest living things in Ireland. It is unusual to find Irish yew as wood and even more unusual to find it in useable sizes. I am lucky enough to have some.…

Geert's Quilted maple 5B

Geert's Quilted Maple 5B. This bass was specified by Geert as part of a pair of quilted maple instruments, the other being a rather special through neck superstrat which can be seen in the electric guitars section. This bass is for studio use only but the specification is still full-on.…

Fretless Syra 6 string bass

Syra Fretless 6 Bass The first Syra 6 string bass. The customer wanted a body made from solid hard maple which made it very heavy and helped it to sustain for weeks! The neck is made from very old birdseye maple that I got from a man who had found…
