hello all ! it's time to me to make a officiel thread about my creation/workshop - BOND INSTRUMENTS !
I'm a Quebec/canada Guitars & Basses builder. Fully Custom, fully handcraft, and based on metal instruments at first time. i make every style of guitars & basses, but specialized on metal players style. I have study with a master luthier in quebec, and i choose to start my workshop after my studies. I Work alone in the shop, and my trademark based on RARE & Special wood. i have a VERY VERY BIG stash of special wood (burl-flamed-sinker-bearclaw-spalted-birdeye- and more).
For the hardware, i used gotoh 510 tuner for more quality, schaller and hipshot product too. I'm a dealer/installator for Graphtech product (tusk and piezo) .
For Electronics, i'm dealer for Bare Knuckle pickups, LACE Pickups, Nordstrands pickups (bass), and Bartolini products (bass). i used EMG sometimes too. CTS pots (normal & Bare knuckle special pots), neutrik Locking jack on all my instruments (unless the customer wants something else).
ALL my woods have an amazing look, so i'm specialized on wood looking instruments, i make opaque color if request, but not my trademark.
ALL my neck are laminated and NO scarf joint at headstock, for more stability and durability.
For the finish options, I offer High gloss lacquer - Mat lacquer - and Oil finish.
For guitars, i make 6-7-8-9 strings , and for basses i makes 4 to 10 strings. Fanned options available on all instruments.
At this time, i make a 5 string fanned fret bass, for Evan Brewer, the new THE FACELESS bassman. and i have some Quebec metal band on endorsment too. ( Beyond Creation - BARF - Derelict - Talamyus )
