New build complete ( headless graphite content)

Recommended Posts

My new custom build is finally finished.

it was designed after a Modulus Flea bass, except headless

Graphite guitar systems neck
Body carved  from scratch
Nova bridge system
Lane Poor pickup
Nordstrand 2 band

a little heavy but I’m still very happy.

Where from and how did you get that neck? Dorsch is everything but easy to reach.

Nova (Andre Passini) seems to be from Brazil and he has only FB pages, am I right?

Very nice, congratulations. Jerry Dorsch makes really good graphite necks. For us in Europe they do get a bit pricey compared to Status Graphite, but then again you cannot order a headless neck from Rob & Dawn.

I really like the design.

I agree. I called Status first. They are the best in the business imo.

i was disappointed to find out that they couldn’t  fill my order but fortunately, Jerry was very accomodating and built a neck just for me.

he was also expedient finishing in about a month

Must admit this is giving me visions/ideas of a new build..... you can’t deny a headless just balances better than headed.

Lovely pics! Really nice how you contoured the upper horn for upper register access and for your “body”, it just flows....

Lovely job, very cool.

can you adjust string spacing on the bridge? Looks like it could use a bit of adjustment, to my untutored eye.

Not sure if he still has some but Kiwi had a number of graphite headless (I believe) for sale a while back..

Hopefully he can respond to this thread and let us know.

The string spacing is fixed at 19mm. Andre (the designer of the bridge) told me that he could make me a new base plate if I was dissatisfied with the spacing.

i think I will keep it as is. It’s very comfortable to me
