El Puntudo 4 for Fabio Lessa, ready

This one is already in Brazil with Fabio Lessa. Hopefully, we will see him play it really soon.
It’s a dream to play, thanks to the super short scale, but with a rock solid tone, and only 3.2 Kg. That’s only 7 pounds!

Here we can see the last stages of the finishing process. Just one more coat of polyurethane and it’s done.DSC_9220

And last, but not least, the pickups. For this bass I made alnico 5 jazz style pickups. Kind of a traditional sound, but a little clearer. They are the first ones in the picture. You can see all the other pickups I made that day for all the other basses I’m working on. Oh, it was a long day…DSC_9206

A blast from the past!

Here is Person Tupinambá playing a cool groove on his Dogor 6 Signature, the first of his two Ele signature basses. In this case he’s using the custom wound split coil neodymium pickups.
