I purchased one of Oliver’s very 1st instruments he ever built aprox. 25 years ago. It was a custom acoustic fretless base, 4 string. Beautiful instrument made out of Yew wood sides & back, Spruce top, Maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard, & Ebony binding. Even back when he 1st started building instruments I could see a high level of craftsmanship, attention to detail, & a feel for experimenting with different woods to achieve an original, fuller sound. The sound of that bass
improves every åyear as the wood ages & matures. I’ve bought 2 more guitars since then. An electric Baritone guitar made out of Mahogany which has six strings 20 & is open tuned to A.Absolutely Gorgeous to look at & has a big rock’n sound. It’s worked well for some funky bass lines, big heavy chords, can break out into a solo, or even a country twang. My most recent purchase which you will find pictures of on this site is a custom 5 string electric bass. It’s got a custom oversized body made out of Koa wood, Custom Koa neck shaped
to fit my hand & a rosewood fingerboard.
My dream bass, I can’t say enough about it. It’s got sexy curves, wood grain like I’ve never seen before, & a huge HUGE sound. The combination of the Ultra Jazz 5 pick-ups & the tone of the Koa wood make for a sound like no other. The finish is flawless. I could stare at her for hours. The1st night I got her I didn’t sleep. I kept waking up drooling over her wanting to caress & stare at her. My girlfriend is a little jealous. Now I’ve got my eye on a nylon string acoustic he’s building. Uh oh, I think I’m addicted. Oliver, thanks for a lifetime of playing enjoyment.
