Denise's Custom Series Bass

Designed around a Fender Starcaster, this was Dog Tired's first bass.  Denise had been playing a Gibson Ripper which was way too heavy and long, so she wanted something lighter and more balanced.  She's also a classical strings teacher, so thought she'd like to have something fretless as well.  We built this with a heavily-chambered mahogany body with a highly flamed maple cap, and we designed the chambering pattern to leave more meat at the tail end to help with balance and counteract any possible neck dive issues.

Here are the specs:

  • 34" scale
  • 5 string fretless with maple fret lines
  • Mahogany body with maple cap and inlaid walnut accent stripes
  • 5 piece maple/walnut neck with carbon fiber stiffening rods
  • Ebony fingerboard
  • MOP DogTired logo inlay
  • Tinted shellac burst with lacquer top coat
  • Seymour Duncan Jazz bass neck pickup
  • Seymour Duncan MM sweetspot pickup
  • Active preamp with volume, blend, treble, mid, and bass control
