Fine quality, handmade basses, crafted in the U.S.A.
The time has come to end a chapter. I
have decided to shut the doors on this thing I've been calling "LeCompte
Electric Bass". As competition
grows and the used market expands I've found myself at a place where I'm just
not able to maintain the kind of consistent workload needed to keep things
running. It's been a great ride with
lots of highs, an abundance of growly low notes and plenty of sawdust. I’ve learned a lot and don't regret a minute
I would like to thank all my customers, supporters and players of LeCompte basses
worldwide. Special thanks go out to my
many repeat customers. The trust you put in me time and time again gave me a
lot of confidence and helped me realize I could build a great bass. Other big thank you(s) go out to Bass Player
Magazine, Rod Taylor, Tom Bowlus at Bass Gear Magazine, as well as the guys
over at No Treble.com. Thanks for the great articles and helping get the word
out. I also want to thank my wonderful
wife, Lynda, for her support and putting up with the clutter. You’re the best!
I'm going to leave the website and the Facebook page up for posterity's sake
for as long as possible...and who knows…even though I'm formally closing the
doors you just might see a new LeCompte bass pop up for sale from time to time.
