It's a new year - what better time to introduce a new an improved website?
This latest web update has been in the works for a while, and I'm thrilled to have it up and running.
The biggest news, without a doubt, is the introduction of my line of guitars. These instruments are the result of a long and careful process of design and prototyping, and will be a primary focus for continuing development in 2012. There are many special and unique details involved with these instruments, and the "Guitars" pages will soon include more about all of those.
I've also added:
-A "Players" page, with pictures and testimonials from some satisfied clients
-An "Audio & Video" page, featuring various demo and performance clips featuring the instruments
-A new article from Fretboard Journal
-Sharing buttons for Facebook and other social media - click the buttons on the left and let your friends know you were here!
-New basses in the Basses galleries
-...and several other little improvements to make the site even more fun!
The new year will also bring more frequent updates to this "What's New" page - everything from shop snaps to "pinups" of completed instruments, sneak previews of new developments, and anything else that's "fit to print". Stay tuned!
Premier is truly a full-service store, carrying everything from top-shelf basses and amps to cables, strings, effects, and accessories. Furthermore, they also offer lessons and just about everything else you could ever need or want from a music shop.
Owner Dan Basica has a very wide range of extremely high-quality gear on display, including two gorgeous Elfin 5-string basses - a fretted and a fretless.
If you're anywhere nearby, definitely make the trip to visit this incredible new shop and play some beautiful basses!
Dan also has a fully featured website (with shopping cart...hint, hint!), so you can browse all the bass goodness from anywhere:
A few updates ago, I promised a look at a "very special 6-string"...
Well, it's finally done, and it is really a beauty!
This "multiscale" 6-string bass has a 33" high C scale, stretching to a 36" low B.
The electronics are as custom as it gets, featuring both active and passive tone controls, and a built-in stereo headphone amp with auxiliary input for music to play along with!
The extra-long scale gives the low notes amazing depth, clarity, and integrity. This instrument has a clear and unified voice from bottom to top, and the "beyond-deluxe" electronics package make it capable of just about every possible sound.
There's one more big piece of news coming soon - as soon as I take the picture! Stay tuned...it will be here very soon!
