Completed Guitars

Billy Greer of KANSAS Custom Bass

Posted Under:

I was introduced to Billy Greer back in 2010 and as a result he decided to let me build his first truly custom bass guitar to be used on the road for all of his KANSAS gigs. I completed the bass in May, 2011, and he’s played it in every show since. Better still, we’ve become very good friends. It’s a solid, one piece, zebrawood body and neck with some cool custom features…
