    Dwayne Glanton of central Arkansas is the builder.

    http:dwaynesthisandthat.us

    He built this bass for himself and used it for about
    three years. He then decided to play double bass
    and built one for himself. He decided to sell this
    bass to me for $90 with a TKL hard shell case.

    It is all figured curly maple and it has a laminated
    neck through body with purple hart fretboard. The
    pickups are EMG Select. It plays and sounds first
    rate. It weighs 9 lb 9 oz.

    I don’t know how I got so lucky. All I can say is that
    Dwayne Glanton is just a wonderful guy,

    :eek:

    90 bucks!? You bass-ically paid for the case and he threw the bass in for free. It looks great but the tuner mounting freaks me out a little.

    Nice!

    Yes, it is strange isn't it.

    The man who built this bass was not a bass
    player, but he is a musical instrument builder.

    The bass reflects that he wasn't a bass player
    at the time he built it. But, he did an excellent
    job considering.

    Reminds me of a Peavey Cirrus, but with slightly longer upper & lower horns on the body. Cool, especially for 90 bones.
