Drake Custom - Vera (Matt's Tele-P)
Selling my Drake Custom - Vera. A 32" scale Tele-P that I commissioned Andrew to create.
She's my avatar and she's pretty hot.
"Quality build" is simply a huge understatement. Andrew's craftsmanship is beyond remarkable.
Vera is a real pleasure to play. Vintage yumminess, super comfortable, no neck dive (wide strap) She's worn flats most of her life. The chambered body is resonant - again, 32" scale. Recessed Dunlop straplocks.
There are tons of spec details in the attached links. Of course, I will post current photos as well.
Born on date 4/1/2012. Played a lot since then and there's a good amount of player wear but you gotta get close to see it (light scratches - no dings, dents, or buckle rash). 4 filled holes on top from a couple of p/u cover experiments.
Comes with Gator hard case and a potpourri of strings. Flats and some others, too.
$1200 shipped w/in CONUS. (She was 2200 new).
I could be tempted to trade for "the right" P or P/J. 34" scale or less.
Here's a link to the Drake Custom site and Vera's details.
Here's a link to the build thread.
Thanks for looking!
I know Andrew personally and he's a great guy. And makes killer basses - exceptional attention to detail.
What is the string spacing and width at the nut? Thx
I seriously love this bass. I wish I could take it home. *wipes tear*
Seriously though, looks amazing, super comfy scale length, sweet pickup choices and the construction looks just perfect.
Le sigh. GLWS.

Trades? P or PJ, 34" or 32" scale. Can add cash for the right one.
59 AVRI P
You can approximate string spacing at the bridge if you measure from E to G string (center to center) and divide the result by 3...
= .75 inches ... 19.05 mm ...
