My name is Dan Lenard. The luthiers I work with each make about 20-40 basses per year for the entire world, with a majority sold near their home base. These are not  mass produced factory made basses. Just like great music, great bass guitars can be made anywhere in the world. It is my goal to find and offer these instruments to you, the bass community. Simply being “different” is not the point here , quality IS what counts. I rest my reputation on the shoulders of the bass builders of Luthiers Access Group, See what these bass builders have to offer.



Basses can arrive at any time via trade, purchase from players, or new basses from our builders. Keep your eyes on this page so any fretless or fretted, 4, 5, or 6 string bass you have been looking for does not elude you any more.

I often like to do comparisons between basses in an effort to further fine tune my ears. Might be similar basses from different bass builders, or various designs from a particular bass builders. Sometimes these little “tests” are at the request of a player who wants to know how a couple of basses stack up.

The memory clears and a custom bass from the past re-appears here, with a little reflection and look back at a memorable piece.
