    Disclosures:
    Doner Designs is an alias for Steve Doner
    Doner Designs is not a business or professional luthier. I work in accounting as a day job. As a hobby I like to build basses. Approximately once per year my son and I build a theme guitar or bass and donate it to one of our favorite charities using the name Doner Designs. The charities then auction the guitars to raise funds for their causes. We do this both for fun and to support causes we believe in.

    This is a 2015 photo of my personal lineup of Warmoth basses. All utilize Nordstrand pickups, Audere preamps, Babicz bridges and Hipshot tuning machines. The last photo includes all the specs.

    (Note: Doner Designs is the "brand" name that my son (Richard) and I use for the 1-2 theme guitars that we build and donate to charity fundraiser auctions every 1-2 years. I also build my own basses as a hobby and sell them from time to time - I have GAS like everyone else on Talkbass. DD is not a business or commercial user.)
