Electric Basses

We want to make you the best sounding Fretless Electric Bass in the world for about what you would pay for an entry level imported bass. How can we do this? It's simple; we use honest woods and honest sweat and make an honest profit. We sell direct to you, and eliminate the 100% markup that music stores charge. Therefore, a $400 bass costs you $400, and not $800. We have some of the most respected bassists in the world playing Wishbasses, although we do not have any paid endorsers. We use traditional materials and methods, but are able to take advantage of the most modern technology to save you money, and most importantly, make it easier for you to get your music from your brain to the audience's ears. Our basses are designed to maximize the acoustic coupling between the strings and the neck/body wood. This produces a fine woody tone and lots of sustain. Our basses minimize the metal and electronics in between your hands and the amplifier, letting you control your tones instinctively, instantly, organically. $100.00 a string. Hand rubbed Tru-Oil Finish at no extra cost. Shipping extra. NO active pickups, Fretted basses and fretlines special order only . Adjustable bridges NOT RECOMMENDED for Fretless Instruments.

We are now dealers for the Lace Alumitone pickups, the greatest advance in pickups in decades. Very clean and strong. $100.00 upgrade. Otherwise, only Kent Armstrong J-, P-, MM, Lipstick, and Claymore Soapbar pickups available. The only Piezo Pickup available is our own battery-free system. Default pickup is the Kent Armstrong MM model.

WISHBASS JJK BASS and GUITAR

We are proud to announce the first real advance in electric guitar in a half century, the JJK model. A very simple idea, that nobody ever had the vision to implement. The quarter inch thick top is linked to the body on the edges, leaving it free to vibrate. Simple enough.  The open back does not trap frequencies making the typical chambered body howl and scream. Just an amazing sounding guitar. You have to hear it to believe it.

Both the JJK Bass and JJK Guitar come with a bolt-on neck.

OPTIONS:

-Your choice of pickup
-Rosewood or Maple Fingerboard
