Another “new” builder discovered ! By new, I mean newly available to the bass community.
Jean-Pierre Mutti sent some pics and a note to me a few months ago, asking if I would like to see an example of his work. I cannot remember ever saying no to such an offer , so I said yes.
The bass has arrived and it has impressed. Not just me, but also the boys at Player’s Music in Worth, IL. A tough crowd, but they liked the bass very much.
Jean-Pierre has been a player for some time, and has done some building for himself in the past. His woodworking skills are top-notch. This bass plays and sounds fantastic, and JP has done what some have not – created a Single Cut shape that is not derivative and offers a new take on this design style.
This bass has a Flame Maple 35″ scale neck, with crazy birdseye figure on the fretboard and unique block inlays. The body is Ash, the top Bubinga. Weight is 8lbs, 14 oz, and the balance on a strap is about perfect. Bart JB pickups and a Sadowsky 2 band preamp make this bass at home with Funk and Fingerstyle.
We are extremely happy to have been chosen to rep these bass for Jean-Pierre Mutti.
