I just started my first DYI project with my friend luthier Michael Drai
Name of the project : Germanium Bass
Here's the model :
An old german FASAN SC bass (quite rare apparently - still searching any info about it)
I'm a big fan of these old german basses (Hofner, Klira, Framus,etc.). I wanted to built one for a long time, keeping the overall feeling of these, but with enhanced specs...
Here are the specs :
Short scale : 30"
body :basswood + Marshall elephant red tolex covering (!)
fingerboard : rosewood
Neck profile : same as my 74 4001S Rick
Pickguard : yellowish perloid
pickups : Dearmond Turbo-Jet
Bridge : Gibson 3 points (5' strings spacing) :
That's what it gives after the first day :
I'll update this thread throughout the progression.
Feel free to post any comment and suggestion.
