Mirror Front 12-String Bass

1994 Custom 12-String Bass

The builder described this as being a "KISS-style" bass. It is 34" long scale, with a single EMG active pickup and volume control.

Starting with a Carvin 5-string bass replacement neck-through-body neck, the maple body was attached with epoxy. The front of the body and headstock are covered with 1/8" thick Plexiglas mirror. The back is covered with a metal flake automotive paint and high gloss finish.

A Schaller 471 8-saddle bridge / tailpiece was used.

The neck is 1.75" wide at the nut and 2.75" at the 24th fret. Single truss rod. Very unusual!
