Tom Hamilton's F Bass BN Fretted Series
Built in Hamilton, Ontario, Mullen cites this as, "an amazingly well-rounded bass." It has two F Bass stacked single-coil/hum-cancelling pickups with separate volume controls and passive or active modes. The bass is Tom's go-to for anything that needs a wide frequency range due to its unique electronics.

The construction of your dream guitar can be a fun journey, but learning the language is essential.

You’ve visited countless websites, played as many guitars as you could lay your hands on, and zeroed in on the luthier that resonates most with you. You’re ready to take the plunge and your next step is to have a conversation with the builder. You’ll both have lots of questions. Be sure to listen and let them guide you through the process. This is when the fun begins.
