Take a look at my new Drake Custom
My good friend, Andrew Drake, visited this morning and delivered my newest bass. I wanted to share this with the TB community.
Andrew and I began talking about this bass in late March - early April and the build got under way later in April. Andrew was gracious enough to allow me to help in the design of this bass, so everything in design, from body shape to electronics was truly a joint effort between the two of us. I couldn't be more pleased with the result.
The bass is beautiful....a work of art. Craftsmanship and finish are wonderful, second to none. And, best of all it plays like a dream and sounds....well I don't think there are enough superlatives to describe it. It is big and deep, can be punchy, and is very woody sounding. Nothing is like an upright, but this is about as close a facimile as one can have in a bass guitar.
And even better, we came in under budget.
A couple of teaser photos are below....click on the thumbnails, but to see all the glam photos, go to this link: http://www.drakecustombass.com/koogler-fretless .
I just had to share this one. It is an absolute keeper. I'm feeling very excited and fortunate to have this bass.
Hope you'll click the link and enjoy the photos.
Thanks for letting me share my excitement.
Very cool! I live in Des Moines, so I see Drakes on occasion, and I've always thought they look a little wonky, like knockoff CTs, but that is really gorgeous. Looks like Andrew has stepped up his game lately.
Love it! The Redwood sure is elegant congrats.
