My first headless

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm new here and I only build 2 basses, this is my third bass and it is a headless bass to show the bridges I'm producing here in Brazil, so I hope you like it.

The design is not mine, my friend Samuel Martins, from S.Martyn basses loaned me his design.

Here are the specifications:

- Body: Cedar

- Top: Champaca

- Black veneer between body and top

- Neck: Marfin, Louro Faia and Purple heart in the middle

- Escale: Brauna (34")

- Pick-ups: G&B Alnico V, Jazz Bass Style

- Bridge: Nova Headless bridge (Nova Guitar Parts)

Fabulous 

 

btw “you borrow from someone”, they “loan to you”. I think it’s the same word in Portuguese but not in English

No your English is fine - everyone makes small mistakes in foreign languages. I had to work in German for years and people were always correcting me in minor errors . If no one tells you you do not learn. English is really hard

Excellent work Andre. Looking forward to seeing the finished bass.

Thank you Sam, It's a shame my time is always short to build it.
