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

As a one man show 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, and all the picture taking and marketing. Heck, I'm even the guy who puts the bass in the box and ships it to you when it's done.
