I am selling my “Earthquake” 4 string bass!I designed and build this “baby” in 2006. It took me nine months to unleash spirit in it – refining the design, choosing and building the hardware, the electronics etc. Now I am ready to say good buy to my “baby” hoping to find home and parents who really appreciate his uniqueness and beauty. The bass is new, used only for studio records and video presentations, never owned, and never been in somebody else’s hands more than a day.I remember when I found Maple thee log in front of the house of my neighbor, prepared to be cut in pieces for fireplace, winter was coming. I bought this Maple log and as you can see the log gave me almost all possible variety of wood (plain Maple, curly Maple, spalted Maple, quilted maple) necessary for me to build this unique bass.
