Valley Arts Proto Bass

I found a Valley Arts neck, made in USA, completely made of rosewood, with highgloss finish. Marvellous! A neck like this is very rare. It is probably more than ten years old and very well seasoned and played in.

I combined this beauty with a Japanese basswod body, with black highgloss finish, and applied some aging as to match it with the neck. I installed passive electronics, Hotwire J Pickups and Black Gotoh hardware. This neck compresses the tone a lot! That bass is a real one-off! Hear for yourself!
