How many basses does each Manufacturer make?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Michael Jewels, Dec 14, 2001.


  1. Does anyone have stats on any/all of the bass manufacturers, as to how many basses they produce each month or year? Fender, Gibson, Musicman, et cetera. Totals? I'm just curious.

    The only hard number I remember is that the japanese Factory that makes Ibanez (and others!) average 20,000 instruments a month - basses and guitars.
     
  3. Not wanting to be a tree hugger or anything, but, where do they get all those trees from?
     
  4. Maybe the Luthite forest?
