The Master Builders

I have visited many trade shows and exhibitions for basses and have always been deeply fascinated by how even experienced instrument makers sat in front of me with bright eyes and told me about their instruments and innovations.
They told me about how they had built and improved their instruments night after night over the years. How they experimented with wood combinations and scale lengths and how new manufacturing techniques, designs and constructions were constantly being thought about. Not from nine to five, but 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, these craftsmen are on fire for what they do. With the goal to complete every order and wish in perfection and to hand over the instrument to the customer as a perfect masterpiece after finishing the work. All of these master builders offer all this to the highest degree. Everyone does it their own way, with their own personal touch.
