Perri Ink's first custom bass guitar, the Rocky IV, features a maple neck, Seymour Duncan Music Man pickup, and 12K gold leafing.

Los Angeles, CA (October 22, 2013) -- Perri Ink. Custom Guitars announced the debut of the Rocky IV custom bass guitar today, the company's first offering to the bass market.

The bass features a contoured solid alder body, a one piece maple neck with black block inlays and a 34" scale length, Jenz machine heads, a Seymour Duncan Music Man pickup and EQ circuit, and absolutely stunning 12K Gold leafing by the world famous SoCal painter Sonny Boy.

According to Perri: "We're extremely proud of our very 1st custom bass guitar. Many ideas have culminated in the finely tuned instrument you see here, starting with the the desire to combine the features and aesthetics of the world's three most popular basses. This bass is one serious tone machine."

In conjunction with the release photographer Austin M Bauman shot stills in the ring at Kosmo's Boxing Academy in San Bernardino, CA, and filmed a short video of pro session and touring bassist Brian Weaver (Silvertide, Harlot, Sebastian Bach, Paramore) demonstrating the look and sound of the instrument.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
