Customized Unsung 12-String Basses
Unsung 12-string basses generally and the Galveston 12’s specifically are commonly customized. The low cost of these basses is undoubtedly the reason - if you don’t spend as much on the bass then you can spend more to personalize it. A simple change of pickups can make a big difference in the sound, and individualizing the appearance can help to make it truly your own.
This Galveston in a custom rust finish with screw eyes for strap buttons was modified by a fellow in Sydney, Australia. Then he dressed up like Pyramid Head from the Silent Hill series, strapped on his 12-string bass and wandered around the city. He gets our vote for “Extreme 12ver of the Week!”
This Galveston 12 has a custom "Forester" replacement body. Customized by Alex Berezin of Moscow, Russia.
