Description

Ahhh these wonderful basses are our personal pieces of Carl Thompson’s history, talent & inventive design. It was ordered personally by The Guitar Broker (Craig Brody) & made to our specs. This 6 String Bass was designed with the original style taken from Les Claypool’s personal famous Bass from the band “Primus” but with a beautiful twist. Known simply as the “Rainbow” Bass thru Carl’s client’s & network, we put this idea together of making a 2 pickup version w/frets (regionally) similar to Les’ bass. Carl took his time to make this one of his best basses ever. It also weighs in at 9 lbs…Carl’s secret recipe for quality & lightweight design. We wanted a fully electric bass having nothing metal except for the tuners & frets. Hence Carl made this bass with a beautiful all wood bridge assembly w/wooden saddles to keep that natural vibey tone Carl was so famous for. & I discussed this at least 3 times over the course of a year & he stated to me that it was his fanciest & most beautiful Bass he’s ever made. He documented it from its birth as you can see from the photos. ¬†While in production, every one of Carl’s clients wanted to buy it. “It was being made for a special client in Florida” Carl said over & over to many people & not for sale.

 

Once she was delivered, we were stoked. But I noticed quickly something was missing. Where are the frets ? I called Carl right away & he said I never mentioned wanting frets & to send it back for the frets to be added. Staring at this wonderful piece of Carl’s luv I decided to hold off sending it back for a few weeks to see if I could fall in luv w/a 6 String Fretless bass that I was completely unfamiliar with playing. I picked up this 9 lb. delightful bass & said “she’s gonna sing I bet”. After I plugged her in & heard that “TONE” from god…I was hooked. Having the pretty matching colored fret lines inlaid in the ebony board made in easy to play & I decided to keep her as she is & enjoy her for life.

 

This magical 6 string bass will never leave my collection. They are true pieces of Electric Artwork that cannot be duplicated. Enjoy staring at them because that is all you will ever be able to do…ahhh.
