The feature bass this week has a very nice Michigan White Ash body.

A bandmate asked me to build him a “bass mate” for his beloved old Tele – maple neck, ash body, aged white pick guard. So I took him a slab of 1 3/4″ Michigan White Ash, and he picked out the section he liked. I carved it out, bought Jazz Bass pickups, and some Tele-style hardware to match his favorite Tele. This bass still shows the effects of the Emerald Ash borer on the back side, and even a little bark. It is a one-piece body of naturally harvested, Michigan grown White Ash, a maple neck from StewMac, a modified Tele pick guard, and just simple Danish Oil finish. It came out great – punchy tone, cool vibe, and easy playing.
