Flamed tasmanian black wood. The two fretboards
their own radius, and seperate frets.
Portland luthier David
Minnieweather created the Guitar Bass for John Woolley
from a design that John had sketched out on paper. Neck-through
body, 9 piece flamed maple and purple heart neck. The
core body wood is african white wood, with a mouth-watering
flamed tasmanian black wood top and back. The bass fretboard
is palisander, the guitar fretboard is ebony. The bass
scale length is 34 inches, and the guitar scale lenth
is 25 1/2 inches. The bass side has 14 frets, and the
guitar side has 22 frets.
The bass electronics feature
the Jake Kot signature Bartolini pickups and preamp.
The guitar electronics are Seymour Duncan ('59 in the
neck Duncan Distortion in the bridge). Two output jacks
(one for the bass electronics and one for the guitar).
The bass tuning gears are Gotoh, and the guitar tuning
gears are locking Planet Waves (D'Addario). The knobs
were made by THG out of flamed maple, tasmanian black
wood, and purple heart. Both the bass bridge and guitar
bridge are standard Hipshot models.
