Bass of the Week: LeCompte Electric Bass SHR-4 Short Scale Bass
Bud LeCompte of LeCompte Electric Bass just shared his latest creation, and it stopped me in my tracks. This SHR-4 has an offset body and neck design for a retro feel while having a fresh style.
The short-scale bass is built with a Paulownia body and a matching headstock plate in a red finish. Its maple neck sports a Pau Ferro fingerboard. LeCompte fit the bass with a pair of his own pickups: a Double Down/Triple Threat combo. Other features include Hipshot hardware, a laser-engraved pickguard, and a handmade aluminum control plate.
All in, the bass weighs in at just 6 pounds and 4 ounces!
