Anyone heard of them or play one yet?
Just had a chance to play two basses from Jeff Power of Ella Basses - a 4 & 5 string. He's out of Ormond Beach, Florida.
These things are beautifully made and play unbelievably well. I like crazy low action that few basses I've played support. Well his can and do.
Check out his site: http://ellabasses.com/
I know that this probably reads like an endorsement. Let me say that this is not the case. He's just doing some work on my Modulus and I had a chance to check out his stuff. Very impressive and not well known yet.
Just had to rush into the house and share the info with guys first chance I got. That's how impressed I was. Anyone in the market for a high end custom bass should check him out.
I've owned several custom basses and currently own a Modulus Q5 and a Lakland and can tell you that his basses exceed the quality of ALL of the basses I've had a chance to check out.
Wife tells me I can't even think about it this year... :crying:
OK, I put my money where my mouth is. Just purchased Ella Bass #11. Wow this bass looks, plays, and sounds AMAZING. I've had a few custom basses made for me and I've owned some higher end stuff and this is just right up there among the best I've ever touched.
Here's a poor quality cell phone pic. I'll update with better pics later.
It looks like you can get them passive, which is good. Also it appears from the wide variety of pickup options that you can have the pickups probably in any position you want.
I tend to be distrustful of those who feel the need to talk about their religion on their business page, though.
OK, as promised some more pictures of Ella Bass #11. Here are the details:
#0011 was built at the end of 2010 there's a date on the back of the headstock.
Body is Sapele with burled redwood top
Neck is mahogany and maple with Gabon Ebony fretboard.
pickups are emg-x with the stock EMG circuit.
hardware is all hipshot
