The newest. Custom for Byron Santo. 7.5 lb six string.
I'm not a fan of the shape, way less of dyed through woods, but it looks like an outstanding job.
What are the controls on this beauty ?
i hope it plays better than it looks
The most important question is how does it sound?
Very nice, that deserves to be full size!
What's the spacing on this one?
Thanks Cliff. It is a bit unusual, but hey, the guy I built it for is quite an unusual player. Sounds quick and punchy. Spacing is 17mm on bridge. Basslines custom pickups, b,t,m and pull contour controls with a toggle switch for each pickup that changes the frequency response.
As for the shape, it is built for a guy who has thoracic outlet syndrome and required a light bass that balances well. The upper horn extends just past the 9th fret and is a easy to play while standing.
I think it's beautiful, and probably my favorite double-cut bass I've seen in a long while.
I think the shape is actually really awesome, it has the horns of a Ritter Okon mixed with the back end of a JP, with its own style mixed in here and there. I think it looks outstanding. I also really like the dyed through wood, I think thats a nice touch.
Those two eyes in the body are perfect little accents as well
What the hell, here is the back and a closeup of the eye.
I think your bass looks awsome. It reminds me of the ocean or the beach.
Don't forget to bring a towel!
Seriously, that's one trippy bass.
I love the bigger shots of it. From far away (eg, the thumbnail in the first post) it looks hideous -- as if it's sick. Closer up though, it's definitely gorgeous. The shape is also very cool -- and I didn't even know Basslines did custom pickups -- very cool.
cant say i care for that shape but the finish is amazing. cool stuff
is it possible? to have a 6 string bass for less than 9 lbs.? thats pretty and kind of reminds me of a a Carl Thompson 6 mates with an abalone shell
My custom Basslines are Linear Humbuckers. Each pickup has a 3-way mini toggle that changes the resonance peak of the coils.
Is it me or do the knots on either side of the last fret look like eyes and the cuved grain between the pickups look like a cow nose. I swear I see a cow in that bass, and Its coming to get me!
Seriously though, it looks very well crafted. Enjoy
Damn, I never noticed that cow nose before!! Don't fear the nose Thanks for the nice comments.Even if you don't like it, you owe it to yourself to check out Byrons playing. Check out Byron and Scott Hubbell playing dust in the wind on bass. http://byronsanto.com
See reply #9.

Omg...its looking at me make it stop!!
Seriously, I love that finish, nice work.
