More Shuker Porn

[quote name='Risk101' timestamp='1510295340' post='3405321']
Just picked up my Series 2 from Jon. Buckeye Burl top with matching headstock faced front and rear , swamp ash body, maple neck and Birdseye board. Electronics are Aguilar DCBs with the East-UK pre-amp.

I didn't want a cluttered rear, so no battery compartment but an active/passive switch on the front. The tonal range is huge.

I got this after getting a Shuker 2 years back from Cotswold Bass and knew immediately that I wanted to commission something. Oh, and the rear control panel cover is cut from the body wood rather like Elricks or FBass.

All round a stunning piece of work from Jon

PS - my existing Burl Maple Horn is up for sale here.

I played this at the LBGS and absolutely fell in love with this bass, I'm sorry @dood but this passed even yours for me.  It was effortless to play!

I don’t mind admitting I fell in love with it too!! I actually was totally bowled over my Jon’s Eclipse guitar finish and I immediately told him that was the look for my next Shuker should that happen... but then I saw the build pictures of this one. Jon sent me some before it was finished. So of course I changed my mind! :)

A flawless instrument in every way, i would be so proud to own such a bass, especially  knowing that Jon Shuker is the very cream of the crop when it comes to UK talent. (A well known premium USA luthier known for very expensive basses was very complimentary over Shuker’s work!)

Oh and tone..... yum! Jon knows his electronics!!!

Yeah I saw it a couple of weeks ahead of schedule when I was getting my wedding bass sanded down :)

My next bass is almost certainly going to be a shuker :)

Sometime in 2006, my very first Shuker! :) 

Is that the same model as the one I got from Mr Crofts ?

i don't have a Shuker but do have a G&L L1505 that suffered a terminal truss rod and fingerboard failure. Jon replaced the rod and fingerboard with the added bonus of stainless frets. The quality of his work and materials is outstanding, it is significantly better than the original bass.  The cost of the repair was incredibly good value.  Top chap and bass builder.

Oh, and I forgot to add... Jon made a P and also a J neck for me. Long story, but essentially I couldn't decide what was the best option! Currently running it with the J neck.

It was a total peach! I did sell it to get my current pair of Shukers that have been in service for over ten years now. I've been through a lot of basses but the Shukers have, understandably, outlived the lot. I can't wait until I can get another!
