Companies that only produce things for bass?

    When I was jetting around the Aguilar site, the lack of anything to do with guitar -- at all -- struck me as very odd, and seems to imply that the company only produces equipment for basses, which seems very interesting to me. As I thought about other companies that seemed to follow this trend, I could only come up with Warwick (but they are owned by/partners with/own a company that makes guitars), Azola (they also make EUBs, UBs, and ABGs in addition to regular BGs, but no amps), and Ampeg, although I'm not sure about them -- I've just never heard any guitarist talk about them.

    Are there any other "only-bass" companies out there?

    I got these from Yahoo:
    Pedula
    A Basses
    Lakland
    GR Basses
    I don't know if anyone knows those companies, but they appear to be only bass. There are prolly like a million custom companies.


    I just noticed where you are from...And I will not say another word.

    Well, Warwick has a line of guitars and guitar amps under the old trademark name Framus.

    Meet the California Blonde. Designed for acoustic guitars, mandolins, violins, etc. And used by players such as Jackson Browne, Lindsay Buckingham, Steve Earle, Stone Gossard (Pearl Jam), Davey Johnstone, John Jorgenson, Laurence Juber, Martin Simpson,
    Jeff Tweedy (Wilco).

    Now, I don't know, but I think those guys are pretty much all guitar players.
