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!
