A fully refundable $1000 down payment will reserve a place on the waiting list at the current price, and orders are typically handled in the order they are received. However, this may vary occasionally due to the timing of competitions or the accommodation of a client's access to funds. It is recommended to make a deposit as soon as possible as the price is regularly adjusted for demand and every so many orders will be raised accordingly.
The player may choose a string length between 41-42", varnish preference (light/dark, golden/brown/red, antiqued heavily/moderate/light), fingerboard length, end pin/accessories, optional C extension, bumpers, et cetera, priced accordingly. Instruments are tailored to the individual per order; bespoke copies can be arranged and require a larger, non-refundable deposit. There exists a large repertoire of photos, tracings and measurements of numerous examples of exquisite basses should a bespoke copy suit your needs. All bass models are available with either a flat or round back.
