David Minnieweather Custom
The late Portland bass craftsman David Minnieweather built this one-of-a-kind 5-string, string through body and lined fretless bass instrument for monster bass player Sandin Wilson during the year 2000. Hear the bass played by Sandin http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/sandinwilson
, Track 8: “I Can’t Make You Love Me”.
Recently, David King http://www.kingbass.com/ a personal friend of David Minnieweather and custom bass builder/luthier meticulously and painstakingly restored the instrument to the original design. He added custom made curly maple control knobs at my request http://dknob.com/knurlindex.html.
This bass features a light weight semi-hollow body, dual pickup design with one EMG magnetic and an EMG piezoelectric bridge pickup, separate volume and tone controls plus a switch to select the front, both or rear pickup.
The highest grade curly maple top lies on an ash back to comprise the body. A pau ferro lined fretless fingerboard sits atop the curly maple neck.
New Thomastik flat wound strings, battery and locking input jack. Low fast action and amazing sustain
