Pay a deposit for your very own custom made bass guitar, made to the specifications of the Original Moondot Five String Bass Guitar. Handmade for you in Ireland.

This bass has been created to fulfill everything you desire in a new design of bass, lightweight and balanced perfectly using select tonewoods and highest quality hardware to bring you the most enjoyable, resonant, smooth playing bass guitar.

Constructed using light weight tonewoods with an orientation that allows this bass to sing, combined with our in-house designed and handwound pickups to give you a beautifully resonant bass that’s an inspiration to play.

The combination of mahogany and maple in the neck gives you the best of both worlds, with the brightness of the maple with the punchy undertones of mahogany. The singing Ebony fingerboard and earthy walnut body finish off the tone nicely to give a lively playing and angelic sounding bass.
