F Bass – Alain Caron Signature

Stunning looking bass. Seriously – makes me want to be a bass player … again. Ahem – not that I ever was – I mean since the last time I wanted to be a bass player. (Hat tip to Scott Levine at http://scottsbasslessons.com/ for alerting me to this manufacturer).   fBass say: This model was developed in collaboration with Alain Caron over many years. The AC line was inspired by Alain’s desire to have one bass that could do it all, having an extended range with easy access for soloing and being able to produce anything from acoustic to modern electric tones. This wide variety of tonal possibilities is mainly due to the configuration of pickups and controls. As well as offering a “standard” magnetic tone, the piezo pickup and chambered body allows you access to acoustic tones, and the attack that an acoustic instrument offers. The two separate volumes allow you to blend the magnetic and piezo pickups in any amount of each, not limiting you to the fixed levels of a blend control. The passive tone control functions whether in passive or active mode enabling it to modify a different set of frequencies than the ones affected by the active tone controls. This bass is the “King of Fretless” with a very “BIG” sound!   http://www.fbass.com/ Share...

Brubaker 12 String Bass

Beautiful? Probably not, but … … is there beauty in extremity? This Brubaker 12 string is certainly gorgeous to look at in a frightening kind of way but that’s a 12 string BASS guitar there! Heck, I have trouble with the correct number on my humble 6 string guitar. There isn’t any information about this guitar on the Brubaker site – if anyone can find out anything more – or even if they can better this – let me know! http://www.brubakerguitars.com/ Share...
