This has been a dream bass for a LONG time. I present to thee, quite possibly the first ever, UPHOLSTERED BASS GUITAR.  This is not your grandma’s couch cushion…

First came the vintage fabrics, courtesy of local artisan and collector Jubilee Street. Next, to find a willing upholsterer… Chicago Upholstery and Drapery in Evanston was more than willing to take us on, and what a job they have done. Get a load of that piping! And the edges of the body even have a slight plushy cushion to them!

First thing everyone wants to know is how the upholstery affects the tone. I could make some cringey pun and tell you it has a wonderful, PILLOWY tone, but really, this bass sounds exactly as it should. Loaded with a Curtis Novak BiSonic and strung with Dunlop flats, it will take you to P-bass heaven and beyond. And the best part is, you can ditch your fancy polishing cloth and guitar spray: all this bass needs to stay clean is your favorite lint roller!

“The Serek Armitage is my take on the tried-and-true P bass. With a quarter-sawn maple neck and Hipshot USA hardware this bass is ready for anything you throw at it. The body contours and slim neck profile with a 1 5/8” nut width make this bass play itself. Imagine all the benefits of a P bass without all the clumsiness and clunk and you have the Armitage.”
