    Dear All,

    just a short post to remember and commemorate a Friend.
    During August 2009 "Penel" passed away. Not only he was a Friend, but also a great bass player and a passionate builder.
    He used to build aluminium body basses.
    Each one was a little labour of love.
    We, friends of "Penel", have just put together a small googlepages website and we would like to share with all of you bass addict his works.


    Thank you

    No. All the TeleLan made went sold. So nothing is available for sale...
  5. Having a CNC milling machine in my shop, can appreciate what he put into building those. Many people might think that the machine would just spit those bodies out, finished and ready to go........... but I can tell you, there's a LOT of craftsmanship going on there. Sorry for your loss, may he RIP.
