A beautiful custom Minotaur 5!
May 19, 2015
We've just shipped this gorgeous custom Minotaur 5-string bass to a very happy customer.
This bass features a mahogany body with quilted maple top, a maple neck, and upgraded ebony fingerboard/bridge/tailpiece.
The 30.38" scale makes it incredibly easy to play, and the E-C tuning offers extended range up into solo territory for lead and chordal playing.
Here's a quick video we made before the bass went to its new home:
...and here's what the new owner had to say:
Joe, this is one terrific instrument. I just got back to town and checked it out today.
I love the sounds—of which there are almost too many to count. I love the looks—flawless.
I love the strings—so glad I didn’t veer from the recommended design and go traditional.
I love the setup—first bass I’ve had in years that the guys at the music store saw no need to tweak in any way …
... and so forth. I wouldn’t hesitate to let you know if there were a single thing I could find to criticize.
By the way, staff were uniformly helpful, and every one of my nitpicking a priori customizations came through, exactly as requested.
Nothing beats a happy customer!
