Electric Bass Builder Estate Sale in Hendersonville, NC
Hello Bass Builders
I am sad to announce that Dave Simmons, maker of Simmons Basses, passed away in September. His family is now making moves to settle the estate and they are planning to sell the contents of his shop this week.
Included in the sale; all his shop equipment, wood, pickups, tuners, partially finished basses, and likely things we have not uncovered yet. all items will be priced around 1/2 of the new retail price.

Thank you for your interest. I hope to see some of you in Hendersonville.
What a shame. Sorry to hear it. Good luck with the sale I wish I was closer. We have property in Penrose but wont be in the area.
Are those times and dates right? They are going to open from noon to 8 PM on Thanksgiving?
Yes the times and dates are correct. The family will be there and encourage potential instrument builders and woodworkers to come over. I will be there part of the time helping out
The family just informed me that due to unforeseen circumstances, they will not have Thursday (Thanksgiving day) hours.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
How did the sale go?
The sale was very successful. Though most of the folks that showed up were more interested in the lumber and the tools, we had a handful of folks that specifically wanted bass parts and instrument makers tools.
There are still many bass parts and partially finished basses still available. The Simmons family and I plan to take as many musical things as we can to a guitar show after the first of 2013. I will post information when we make a decision which guitar show makes sense.
Thank you all for your interest.
Really? I'm glad it went well and was kicking myself for not being able to attend. I was interested in unfinished basses. Any way we can maybe work something out?
PM me if so!
That explains a lot. I've been feverishly trying to contact Dave over the past 6 months to no avail and am very saddened at the loss :( We had spoken months back and he was going to email me a few photos of some Clippers he had available. Are they still available? If so, I'd love to own a few more and help the family out any way that I can. Please send me an email at email@example.com. His family is in my prayers!!
