I started working on this project in the beginning of 2009. I decided to take a look back and to review some of the bass projects I had left on the back burner. The general idea I followed was to remake and redesign one of my bass models on which I had worked in the earliest years of my practice as a luthier.
The concept was simple – making a brand new set neck bass model with a comparatively small, compact and balanced body. The hardest part was to discover and balance the fine line of correlation among the size, shape and sound. I am very happy and proud of the outcome.
The bass has Serial Number #001
