Parquet bass?

  1. In my lesson today, my teacher mentioned a guy in Santa Cruz who makes Double basses out of parquet flooring.

    Has anyone else heard of this?

  3. I want some of whatever you guys are smokin', snortin' and/or drinkin'! :crying:

    If it was parakeet flooring would it really talk to you? ;)
  5. The story I got from my teacher is that this parquet-Luthier ;) is mainly a sax player.

    When he hires bass-players for a gig, he insists they play one of his unique basses.

    Maybe Jefe Bollbach could drop by his shop and apply one of his patented Guy Lombardo Wax Finishes.
  7. Perfect timing!
  8. Kill me now.
  9. This guy must've heard about Dizzy making all the drummers use that big Chinese cymbal he used to have! :bawl:
