Moniker Guitars has launched a new line of customisable basses, and they’re celebrating the launch with a giveaway in association with D’Addario where you can win the bass you design! There are two body shapes available: the Zuma and the Dixie. I’ve taken a bash at a few bass designs here. Try your own! Below is the press release.
PRESS RELEASE: Custom guitar manufacturer Moniker Guitars has made a name for itself by allowing customers to design and purchase Moniker electric guitars online at MonikerGuitars.com. Now Moniker is expanding its offering by adding customizable bass guitars. To celebrate the launch of the bass guitar line, Moniker has teamed up with string manufacturer D’Addario to giveaway a custom bass to one lucky winner who designs a bass at MonikerGuitars.comand shares the design on Twitter. The giveaway kicks off today and runs through October 30th. “A lot of work goes into creating a line of customizable bass guitars. We choose the types of wood, scale length, electronics, pickups and parts. Choosing D’Addario XL strings was easy. American made bass guitars deserve American made strings.” says co-owner Kevin Tully.
The Austin, TX based start-up is leading with two customizable bass guitar shapes. The Dixie Bass is a T-style bass guitar and the Zuma Bass is an off-set shape. Both styles are made to order at the Moniker factory in Austin. The basses feature a superior grade alder wood body and maple necks. As with all Moniker guitars, you have a wide variety of colors, pickups and parts to choose from. You can even add custom text, graphics, bursts, binding and more.
Moniker basses can be seen on tour this fall with artists such as Blue October and Bear Hands.
