    Anyone knows of "detachable neck systems" à la Patrick Charton that could be installed on any ol' bass ?
     
  2. Olie, why don't you drop Bob Ross an email..... www.rossdoublebass.com
    Put it to him and see what he says. He's been having computer problems, so be patient!

    There is a luthier in Montreal that will do such procedure. He designed a travel bass with a removable neck, and now a few people have had him install the device on their own basses. There are pictures of his travel bass on his website www.lamario.ca

    Hope that helps.....Dave
     
  4. Whoa!!
    Even if you have no interest in removable necks, check out this site. Lamarre's integral extensions and especially his ornamental carving are unbelievable. Some non-traditional features and beautiful work.
     
  5. Holy ****!! This guys got some carving chops......Take a look at the bass he calls a 5 string, low B intigrated extension. I wonder how the tuning is set up ....high C on the extension?? What do you luthiers think?
    Thanks for hippin' us to this guy D.W.
    After looking and reading closer, he's got the D string on the extension!
     
  6. That is some seriously amazing work! Someone transfer this link to the basses area! WOW!!!

    Of the few headscroll's I've seen, and theyre usually a little over the top, those are sweet (not to mention those integrated extensions).

    But the carving on the back of the pegbox... makes you wanna cry. :bawl:

    Yow...sometimes you find someone doing exactly what God intended them to do. I think that's the case here.

    Mario does really good work and builds great basses. Last time I was there he had just finished his new five string with a detachable neck for a bass player in Europe....it sounded great! I think if I remember it was a five string with a high string instead of a low string.
