Having spent years in the autobody repair and automobile restoration business, along with an education in fine art combined with decades of design and engineering experience, as well as having a life-long love for music and electric bass guitar it only seemed natural that I chase the dream of building fine quality musical instruments. Thus, LeCompte Electric Bass was established in the fall of 2004.

As a one man operation I do all of the design work, all of the woodworking, all of the finish work, all the parts ordering, all the pickup winding, all the wiring, all the assembly and setup work, all the picture taking and all the marketing. I'm even the guy who puts the bass in the box and ships it to you when it's done.
