_DSC5554 - Version 2 I built my first bass in 2004 because I simply couldn’t find what I wanted from a production bass in terms of sound and aesthetics. From there, my bass building turned into a hobby, building basses for friends and family. At this point, it has evolved into a part-time business where I get to build a few basses each year. I have built basses for musicians locally and throughout the United States – even for a customer in the Philippines.

Starting with as little as a rough sketch and finishing with your dream bass, every aspect of JC Basses is handled by me. Turning your idea into reality, I put a considerable amount of effort into each design, ensuring the functionality of final product. There is a purpose for every straight line and smooth contour on my basses, this attention to detail is what makes each bass unique. It becomes very apparent with just one look at my basses, that this is my passion in life.

I build strictly custom basses, meaning I do not have specific models that I offer. I will build any shape and any wood combination you want. Feel free to send me an email or give me a call, I will do my best to answer any questions about my basses and how I build them.


Customer Testimonial

“Hey man, I got the bass yesterday and it’s amazing! REALLY! It is completely incredible. Exactly what I wanted and everything I hoped it would be. Man, you did a great job, it’s beautiful. I took it to band practice last night and it sounded great. The guys in the group loved it. They even said that maybe I should think about just playing this bass on everything, instead of doubling on the upright like I have been. Again, thanks a million for making my dream come true. This is without a doubt, the best instrument I’ve ever had. I love it!”
