This bass is really simple. It’s the one I built during my guitar making course. Woods and construction style were not my choice. It is basically a MUSICMAN Stingray copy, but I went for a Jazz Bass style neck, which I find more comfortable.

I had noticed that I never used the controls on my old YAMAHA so I decided to skip the potentiometers. This way, and thanks to the Start jackplate on the back, I could avoid a plastic cover (yuck).

This bass is the only instrument featured on this website that I still own to this day. It has a pleasant “raw” sound, suited for rock music.
