4-String Chambered Bass

4-String Chambered Bass
The latest build for Ben McKee, this is a beautiful mix of modern and vintage styling. The chambered body was kept to a size similar to a normal solid-body, about 14.5" wide by 20". The off-white finish is subtly complimented by an ivoroid binding on the body and fretboard. I continued this theme by using faux ivory for the tailpiece and fretboard inlay, truss cover, and electronics cover. Hidden under the paint is a quartersawn piece of carved douglas fir topping an alder body. The fir top gives the chambered body a wonderfully resonant tone.
