Key Quotes:

"I’ve been through the pain and discovery that comes with ordering a custom bass AND the whole question surrounding whether a custom instrument is even worth it or not. That’s what we’re going to discuss in this video"

"Make sure that the bass you want to order meets the specific tone and vibe that you’re after. Don't be swayed by how something looks when you should really be thinking about how it’s going to sound."

"Custom basses are awesome and they can inspire you to play more, but it’s really not about the bass. It’s all about you!"

As always, see you in the shed...
