Bass guitars

This is the page for our current range of bass guitars. Mostly short scale (30″) 3 and 4 string bass guitars and developed in conjunction with our BO range of Blues Plank guitars. Consequently they are also light weight, resonant and responsive. We have just recently added our new Ibis long scale (34″) and Ibis short scale (30″) to the range.

  • “This is the funkiest bass guitar I have ever played! It has a pop and snap to the tone that is very hard to get from a bass, and the bass itself is the lightest and easiest to play bass I have ever played. The P bass pickup sounds powerful, but really clean and clear.” Justin Johnson (USA) – Blues Plank BO3 bass
  • “Just thought I’d write a brief note to say almost a year on I’m still loving the Thunder Rook bass you built. It’s been going strong, played in numerous local Brisbane bands. I love the look, feel and playability and it certainly draws a lot of positive comments and have steered quite a few people to your Facebook page. I have many high end instruments and I keep coming back to this as it just feels right. The Nordstrand pickup also sounds amazing. Very very happy!” Paul Rickert (Aus) — Thunder Rook bass
