Custom Guitars 00121 '66 Slab P bass
basses are really starting to take off now and have a growing band of very
idea behind Limelight Custom Guitars began after being inspired by Bill
Nash. He makes some of the greatest instruments today and has many famous
players who want the sound, feel and look of a vintage instrument without
the worry of taking their hugely valuable pre CBS Fender to gigs.
Previously the only other alternative was Fender's own custom shop
offerings. However, Nash's are not cheap (around £2000 to buy new in the
UK) and neither are Fender Custom shop.
step forward Limelight Custom Guitars! We aim to produce basses (and later
on, guitars) that look really cool, and desirable, but also to feel just
right when playing and of course to sound fantastic, too.
are not aiming to make cheap instruments which are constrained by inferior
parts, but to make the best instruments we can, with the good quality
parts, and a strong emphasis on sound, feel and playability. We do not
compromise specifications and do not build to a price point. Our aim is offer a viable alternative to Nash and Custom Shop
at less than half the comparable price.
