  1. The first time I used the Lace Alumitones was on the first twelve string bass I built. I was looking for a humbucker that has bar magnets that are wide enough to pick up all the strings equally as good. Many bass humbuckers with bar magnets are a bit on the narrow side. But Lace offers the Bass Bars in several widths (3.5', 4", 4.5"). Which made me curious about those. I checked a few YouTube videos and decided to try them out. I was pleasantly surprised. They have a very high output level (even though they're passive). Are dead silent (no hum whatsoever, even in single coil mode). They sound very even across the tonal spectrum. And I think they look pretty cool too. I've used them on a regular four string bass too.
  2. Latest addition to the family of black basses
  3. Yeah, my bad. My head was in the Thunderbird shapes. But your description was spot on EB-0 Bird. Still regret selling that one...
  4. Did I build that? 🤔 You mean the Telebird perhaps? Or the EB-TB? That must be the one you're thinking of!

  7. I did a drastic make-over on a bass to make it part of the black bass family Used to look like this:
  8. For those who wonder how a twelve string bass sounds:
  9. Yeah, you tune the octave strings slightly different from one another. This gives a rich /full sound. If you'd tune them exactly the same it wouldn't sound as lively. Quite like a piano indeed.
  10. Yeah, or it's stitched together 😉 The reverse triplets were done per special request. The gentleman who I built it for is a finger style player. He wants to hit the octave strings first.
  11. Well... the guy who I built it for plays in Dream Police
