In our most recent feature, we explored the use of C. B. Gitty "Toaster Bucker" mini humbucking pickups for cigar box guitars. Soon after, Jason Mills of Highwood Guitars sent us the following video clip of a resonator bass he created for Larry McCray's bass player, Coreyeon.
About the bass:
The bass features an aluminum top over a base of hickory and mahogany (see bottom photo). The bridge was crafted by Cigar Box Nation member, Randy Bretz. All electronics are by C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply.
The handcrafted bridge is just one of the many cool parts created by Randy Bretz in his Pennsylvania workshop. Visit Randy's profile page on Cigar Box Nation.
Awesome. I hope you post picks when it's done.
popped some pics on the " whats on your bench " thread..
a+x4, awesome work as usual coming out of Jason's shop. Very inspiring as I am building my first bass for someone.
