The Mini Bass with No Name

_dsc0336

Another addition to the Collection is my Short scale Mini Bass Guitar Box “The Mini Bass with No Name”.

It features Aquila Thundergut strings designed for Kala U-Bass,  Approximately 20 1/2″ scale length. Upcycled Rimu body, Mahogany neck and Merbau fretboard. Rather than my usual bone or metal, I also made the nut and bridge from merbau. Flush Mahogany fret markers and an Active piezo rod pickup finish it off.
Tuned standard bass EADG.
