Wilkins bass with meticulously hand-painted Sgt. Pepper''s graphics
Feast your eyes on this—a Pat Wilkins Bass featuring a
hand-painted image of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely
Hearts Club Band album cover. It took artist Chris Compston
two years to finish his rendition; it pays such meticulous
attention to detail that it looks like an actual print,
until you get very close to it.
The bass has a chambered alder body, maple neck and ebony fingerboard, Nordstrand NJ 4SV pickups and Hipshot bridge and tuners. It is a private work and is not for sale. We encountered it at NAMM.
