Bass of the Week: Steve Lampasona “Bones” Bass
Today is Halloween, so we’ve got a frightful electric upright bass for you. Artist, designer, and luthier Steve Lampasona shared his “Bones” Bass, which he crafted with a walnut body, oak neck and bridge, and ebony fingerboard. The removable oak shoulder is hand-carved into a skeleton’s arm that continues into a hand that rests on the body just below the Krivo pickup.
The hand doubles as a bow holder, while a second hand is carved into the pegbox. Other features include an ebonized oak and walnut stand, Gotoh tuners, adjustable legs, and a maple nut.
