Now THAT is one beautiful bass. If it sounds as good as it looks we're all in trouble!
On second thought you need to sell me that one and get the natural one you're dreaming of!
I sent away my 64 Jazz to get refinished by John with amazing results. Sure it looked cool before I sent it to him but because of the way it was finished the varnish would always wear away on my hands and I couldn't play it without the stained finish stinking up a storm. Now John's restored it to it a perfect closet classic finish and I have no qualms about playing it often. Plays better than it ever did. Way exceeded my expectations.
Awesome. Nobody does burst like John!
Can hardly wait for mine to get through the queue.
Wow that really looks great!
Here are some more shots.
Wow, just brilliant work.
Seriously having 'studied' vintage fenders and 'burst in particular ove the years, John has really nailed it with that one (and many others!).
Beautiful bass and brilliant refin.
I'm not an owner but I am an admirer of John's work.
Oh... and bump for more pics!
Don't own a Bass, But John's Zeke Overdrive Pedal is the bomb.
Hope to be able to have John build me one, someday. Incredible, authentic, and professional work - you can really tell that it is a labor of love for him.
That's a great refin, but I also really like the funky ""before" version. Too bad that finish was sticky and stinky.
Yeah, that finish was cool for about 10 years, but John's refin feels and looks much better!
Another stunning project from John Kallas.
John just knows how a vintage Fender should look, feel, sound... (and probably even tastes, LOL) more than any other builder I've ever seen... it just comes through as pure and authentic in every bass I've seen of his.
Having that vast knowledge base in the construction of these instruments(He did work with Leo), the clearly defined vintage-correct aesthetics, and the skill and craftsmanship to translate that knowledge into reality is just a wonderful gift. It's art.
Very impressive, and yes I agree it appears he loves what he does and it shows. Fine artisan/craftsmen of his level gives one hope and inspiration.
My first JK restoration.
I've got one in the works ... Excited, to say the least.
Cool! What's your build going to be?
'73 Jazz ... Black Nitro, Maple neck, bound and blocked ... Can't wait
Wait 'til you see the one I have on the way..... John sent me pics of the painted body and it is looking very very good.
