Design Your Bass

As every musician knows, instruments are very personal tools. Doublebasses have no set string length, outline, or aesthetic. To better serve my clients I now offer the following Design Your Bass. Design a custom Lloyd doublebass that best fits your body size, travel needs, and overall style. All of these choices will be saved and then emailed to me if you decide to proceed with an order.
