What folks are saying...

"The bass is superb.  Exactly what I was looking for in a Jazz style bass.  Plays like butter.  Super nice neck profile, and very playable way above the 12th fret.   Excellent craftsmanship and straight up beautiful finish and paint!"

"This bass is perfect in every way! Beautiful craftsmanship, smooth neck... this bass is worth twice what I paid...Bud is a gentleman, and his shop is excellent. I foresee another order real soon."

"Wow Bud. I'm blown away by this thing. I can't get over how nice it is. Every aspect of it.  I couldn't be happier with it! Thank you so much! Everyone I show it to is amazed at how beautiful it is. "

 "The bass, it is truly incredible.  It's not only great to look at but amazingly playable.  You are a true artist Bud, thank you for building me such a great instrument.  I'll enjoy it for many years. There's nothing better than "Made in U.S.A."

"It's extremely well balanced and caused no pain or discomfort after 24 hours of nearly non-stop playing.   The sound cuts through the mix beautifully and sits comfortably with the various ensembles. I've found my holy grail of bass tones. The wood work is immaculate and better than I could have ever hoped for.  You make a great bass guitar Bud!"

"It's amazing.  It looks absolutely perfect and it sounds like thunder, just how I imagined.  I've played XXXXX before and I play XXXXX now, but yours really is better.  It plays faster and easier and it's lighter than my XXXXX's.  The bass will probably feature on our upcoming recordings and will certainly be my main stage bass this festival season. "

"Bud, this bass sounds great and I love it!!!!"

"Thank you for building me a such a lovely bass.   The bass is lighter than I expected and absolutely no neck dive at all.  You're the man , Bud!   The general finishing of the bass is of course absolutely superb.  I am super happy with the tone of this bass."
