I built a new twelve-string bass

Recommended Posts

This is my second twelve string build.
It took me quite a while to get this one done. Totally underestimated the lacquer process of the intended Mazda colour Soul Red Chrystal.
But I'm quite happy that this red monster is finally ready to rock.

- Mahogany body
- Nine ply laminated Mahogany set neck. Glued in
- Soul Red Chrystal 46k finish
- Ebony fretboard
- Red position dots
- Jumbo frets
- 34" scale
- Buffalo horn nut
- ETS twelve string brass bridge set
- Two spoke-wheel double action truss-rods
- Carbon reinforcement strip in the neck
- Lace Alumitone Bass Bar in the neck position
- Double Lace Alumitone Bass Bar in the bridge position
- Two separate outputs.
- Series parallel switch on the back
- Gotoh GB 350 lightweight bass tuners
- Gotoh Stealth ST 31 guitar tuners
- d'Addario EXL 170 - 12 strings
- Weight: 5.2 kg
Electronics circuit by Bas Becu.

I did. Check the video a few posts above...

Hadn't noticed they were videos, logged in from a secure works PC (on a very, very tedious conference call) and it just shows the static image, not as a link.  Will check out later.
