JC Basses Has Moved

JC Basses has moved from Auburn, CA to Rocklin, CA!! Along with that came getting married!! So after a long Spring/Summer of no builds, JC Basses is now back up and running. We just took on 3 new builds to start things off right!

Semi-Hollow On The Way

This should be the next build I will be doing. Some changes will be made in terms of electronics, but you get the idea.

How To Make Renderings

Lately I have been getting quite a few emails regarding my bass guitar renderings and how I make them. Instead of trying to explain it to each person individually, I thought I would share it with everyone. I am by no means a “pro” at Photoshop, this is just my way of doing it.

Part 2

 

Since it is on YouTube, it is of course really small and hard to see. Sound isn’t that great either, but hopefully it will help everyone out.

12 String Octaved

The owner of the Mandobass came to me with an idea for a 12 string. It has a lot of similarities to the Mandobass, but still keeps it’s uniqueness. He wanted an underwater theme with abalone pickup covers and knobs.

Customer Testimonial

"I fell in love with the Rainbow the day I got it. What craftsmanship from Jared on the collection of wood used on this magnificent bass. The tone is amazing, and my fan base always wants to check it out. What an eye catcher! I look forward to working with Jared on my next bass creation. I recommend JC Basses to any professional player looking for a quality custom bass.”
