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…


White MOP “RockHouse” 12 fret (ebony fretboard) inlay

White MOP “Harmon” headstock inlay

Twin Carbon Fiber Rod neck inlays (2 years on the road & the neck is rock solid)

1mm fiber optic in 4mm MOP pearl side dots with blue LED & custom dimming circuit

35 coats of sprayed on, hand sanded, poly finish (video)
