A short booklet on the history of the bass guitar


In late 2019 I was commissioned to build a bass by Daniel Brunn. A few weeks into the build and chatting with Daniel it quickly became apparent we had something in common -  a strong passion for the bass guitar. As it turned out Daniel was writing a short booklet on this subject and asked if I’d like to be part of it. I was only too happy to help and here’s what we came up with. The majority of the hard work is Daniel’s, but I have written a few parts on building basses. It’s completely free to download so please have a read and feel free to let me know what you think.

Please click the cover opposite to start the download. You will need an E Pub reader (e.g the Books app for Apple) to read it once downloaded.
