I have a bit of  a thirst for musical instruments and in particular bass guitars so I am going to list one new instrument per day which I have discovered and with it a link for more info. To start off today I will put the first up which is:

The Warwick Vampyre NT, a really nice bass that has five strings and a distinctive build to the body. On these guitars you can also get mother of pearl or paua abalone inlays of everything from skulls to pot symbols.

Today's Instrument is going to be the ever popular Gibson Les Paul, a guitar classic which has been salivated over since the late 50's. Though it almost went out of fashion it has remained at the top of its game. Providing a stunning sound for guitarists across the world.

The instrument that I am going to show you today is the Gibson Twin-Neck, first owned by Frank White in the U.K. it took 2 years for them to build it and ship it over. Costing as much as a terraced house back then it was a beauty of a guitar. Containing both a six string and a twelve string neck it had huge versatility.

This morning I am going to tell you about the Hofner Violin Bass, most famously played by the Beatles it is a stunning Bass both Aesthetically and practically, though an odd shape it has really enlivened the spirit for guitar and bass manufacturers all around the world.

Sorry there was a bit of a delay so I am going to post for today and the other two.

June 5th 6th & 7th 2012

The first one is the Warwick Triumph, one of Warwick's less sensible instruments it is an upright, electric, fretless bass. Quite an oddity, similar to a double bass but missing several pounds of wood.


The second is the Hofner President, one of a rare breed as it is a hollow body electric bass, not to be confused with an acoustic-electro bass. Gives a really nice undulating tone largely due to the wood and shape of the body.


And to end this trio is the Yin and Yang bass by Fodera which features a corresponding pattern on the body, to my knowledge a relatively hidden brand of guitars but this bass is definitely an item of discussion.

Today's instrument is the Ozark 'Frailer' open-back five string banjo, it makes a great, clean versatile sound an is a great instrument for beginning Banjo players.
