Are there any in existence? I imagine the hardware would have to be custom made?
JP basses in France. He makes great looking basses and I know that he's done a 7 string headless.
He's making a 9 string headless now!!
Daniel Fernandez Builds Headless instruments as well!
I think that I've seen a David King headless 7.
Gareth Cooper - GMC basses made a headless hollowbody 7 string.
JP, David King and BassLab's Heiko Höpfinger come to mind.
JP is experimenting to find his upper limit (it seems!), Dave has made a few 7's at least, and Heiko has made at least one 9'er ("but why would anyone need so many strings?" )
I'll be working on a 9 real soon in fact
that bass looks so damn cool.
I saw an headless 6er on his site. Did he ever built with more strings?
My impression is that the hard part about headless basses (above 6 string say) is working out how to anchor the strings at the "head" end. With individual tuner/bridge components (as JP has) the bottom end is taken care of, but the headstock end is still a difficulty. I see JP uses some kind of anchoring system. Care to elaborate JP?
BTW - nice work
Oh My Damn!! (slumps into corner crying) Those are frikkin' beautiful, man!!
10 string headless Schack:
how are you going to play this instrument?
With the aid of a very complex device that I still cant quite control, I call it "my hands"
Jp, again, your work is beautiful. You make it very difficult to make up my mind as to who will build my next bass........
lol I'm gonna make you at ease with this.
Next batch is full and the following one will only start in April or May 2005 with a 3 to 6 months build time.
I use some string clamps coming from a german guitar builder. Heiko from basslab uses them to. they're pretty basic but work well.
Well, I'm glad to see your business doing so well. Actually, I went to your site and a lot of the questions I had were in the "what we won't do" section. That takes care of that.
