Looking for info on custom basses Made in Brazil by Reges -
Never heard about them... The best brazilian high end basses are Wood (stated above), HMZ (from Wood founder), Cheruti, Cast and M.Zagannin. There are others, not so famous, but with high quality stuff also. Cassio and D'alegria are some examples.
There are also the mass production guys: Tagima, Giannini, Tonante, and the brazilian made in Korea: Condor, Strinberg, Crafter, Eagle.
It has the name R. Luthier on the headstock and it looks like
it was made for Tony Gullage, a gospel bass player in New Orleans. (His name is on the headstock) I picked it up from a latin jazz bass player in New Orleans. It's got active EMG jazz pickups and parametric mid EQ. Its had a re-fret job too. It sounds great, I'm using it for funk and redeaux on older
classic rock tunes. I would just like to find out more about who made it.
Me neither. It's likely Reges is one of the smaller builders out of most people's radar...
pc, I don't know if Tonante is any better than it was in my day, but I remember them being the worst guitars on the market. The guitarist in my first band used to own one. I tried it and said "A person who can play this can play anything"
He answered "I know. that's why I'm so good!"
See if this looks familiar to anyone
how's Tagima quality?
very good!! great woods, construction and hardwares (bridges,tuners,etc). Best bass for the price in Brazil.
Felipe Andreolli from Angra uses a killer D'alegria 6-string.
