It was a long time coming…

Stevie was one of the first people we met when we moved here to Ayrshire – it took a while before he took the plunge…but we are glad he did. It was a pleasure to have him around the workshop and what a beastie!

The culmination of years of planning have resulted in an ash body, maple neck, 24 fret ebony fretboard with jumbo frets, 2 Seymour Duncan quarter pounder passive pick ups and chrome hardware. The body style is based on a Musicman. Stunning paintjob by Billy …it sounds as stunning as it looks.

We finally went and did it my good man !

Want to Build a Custom Bass?

Whatever your experience, there are several ways to make your custom guitar a reality – if you want to come to Ayrshire only once to design and build the guitar you have in your head…then the Custom BYO course is the one for you.  These courses run over a total of 8 days consecutively (with a day of rest in the middle!) ONLY in the summer months – late June/early July and again at the end of August/start of Sept (including the Bank Holiday weekend), and this course starts with a full scale design session to create a working drawing for the build. The course fee is higher but includes all the materials to make a high spec custom electric (upgrades and extras are also available ..POA) There are still a couple of places left for this year, but we are also taking bookings for 2016.

If the one hit summer course doesn’t appeal, then there are still options… do a Custom Design one to one with Mark, or book onto a Design Your Own Guitar course, both here at the workshop, or enrol on our online How to Design Your Own course…  get a clear design, spec and quote before you come to build.

Or you can pick dates from our Build Your Own Guitar Programme – weekends, and longer to fit around you and the guitar you want to create.
