The Stetson is an homage to that first solid body electric bass produced back in 1951. Compared to the stand-up double bass that preceded this compact form, the development of a fretted fingerboard finally allowed notes to be played with "precision". Used by every bassist from the likes of Motown’s James Jamerson, all the way to modern players like Pino Palladino, this bass has become a work horse and has earned its place in history among the true classics. This intrument truly embodies the spirit of a true vintage bass.
Our standard model features a traditional lightweight ash body, hand wound split single coil pickup, and your choice of a rosewood or maple fretboard.
Our bodies are made from some of the best woods you can find anywhere. Our stock model comes in Alder for rich and bold tones. We also offer the option of swamp has for a higher body and a more resonant tone.
Every TMG Bass is built with the highest standards any guitar has ever had. We’ve teamed with with companies like Emerson Custom, Kluson, Callaham, and Mastery bridge to make sure that our guitars play and feel the way it should. All Vintage, All awesome.
We've fitted all our bass necks with Hipshot HB2 Bass Tuning Machines. From there on it's your choice of Rosewood or maple fretboards, and our "vintage worn" finish you have to try to believe. You’ll feel like you’ve owned it your whole life. Other options include Brazilian Rosewood Slab Board, 5A Flame Maple, 5A Birdseye, and Quarter-sawn Maple.
All our bass models come stock with your choice of "Lindy Fralin" or "Aguilar Pickups". We've teamed up with these brands to bring the vintage tones of yesteryears back to life. Other options include Active/Passive Preamps with "Aguilar" or with "Darkglass Tone Capsule"
