the wood burned Aztec basses
Here's Tim (all the way below) holding a wood-burned bass destined for stages around the world (see man onstage). The man liked it so much he brought us another one to do the same thing once again (the other three).
Tim applied the burst style finishes by hand with a special blend of shellac and dye. Once the finishes are complete he installs all the hardware, wires it up according to the owner's unique tastes prior to a computerized fretmill on the PLEK machine.
These instruments play like cheese dreams.
