5-String Custom Chambered Bass
March 2013
5-String Custom Chambered Bass
This was a totally unique design that was collaboration between myself and the client, eminent jazz artist Eric Mingus. Lines that were drawn two-dimensionally were converted to three dimensional carving, requiring a lot of planning for the final chambered construction. The bass was made a bit bigger and deeper than normal, to help create a bigger, warmer acoustic tone. An extra layer of flamed maple was laminated on the body to help accent the unique sculptural qualities of the shape.
