This latest model of acoustic bass presents developments arising from my research on acoustic guitars, steel or nylon strings, prestressed bracing, double sound holes. It is equipped with an electro-acoustic system I chose for its highacoustic fidelity, the French brand AirBagC from Ischell.

Mahogany back and sides, spruce top, mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard and bridge, Savarez nylon strings, scale 860mm, weight : 1,8kg

This acoustic bass is the model I made in the 90s.
I have built a number of them, in 4, 5, and even a 6 strings.
I was already using local woods at that time, such as ash,
Walnut or cherry for bottom and sides.

This one is one of the first, it dates from 1991 - spruce top, cherry wood body, mahogany neck and ebony touch 2 octaves.

La Luna is my most produced bass model, since 1990, around 30 pieces, 4, 5 or 6 strings, fretted or fretless. Its 5 pieces maple and ash neck gives it the dynamics and sustain that characterizes it, and the 2 microphones splitables double coil, brings roundness and precision.

Since 1988, I have built many basses, many of which I have no photos or sound recording.
Here are a few examples.
