Adamovic basses -

The Adamovic Shop is located in Haarlem, The Netherlands, Europe. Since 2001, all our custom basses and guitars are hand made here, one by one, with the best woods and the best components available.

On paper it is a one man business owned by luthier Nikola Adamovic but in reality there is a team of bass and guitar players, studio engineers and many others contributing to the company. All the instruments are being developed with continuous feedback from musicians and sound engineers. Every design and feature is tested by professionals before it is added to our option list. This way we can constantly improve our basses and guitars. Seeking perfection is part of the fun!

All Adamovic basses are designed and hand built by Nikola Adamovic.

His passion for making basses started in the 1990's, with the modifications of his own instruments and later on for others. After reading many guitar building and guitar repair books and customizing several basses, he started to build them from scratch. Soon, people started to get interested in his instruments. The decision was made: Adamovic Basses was founded in 2001.

Looking at the basses available and talking with professional bassists at the time it occurred to Nikola that most people focused on the sound and the looks of a bass, forgetting about one of the most important things: ergonomics. He realized that there was a lot to be improved in bass design. He started experimenting with designs that not only sounded great and looked cool but had improved ergonomics. Now the Adamovic Basses are known for their superb ergonomics as well as their sound quality.

Over the first years Nikola has been developing his skills and shared them with others giving bass building lessons. Also his knowledge of woods and their properties resulted in becoming the "musical woods advisor" and writer of the "wood properties pages" for the Amsterdamsche Fijnhouthandel, the biggest store in the Netherlands that is specialized in exotic woods.

With the growing demand for the Adamovic basses there was no time anymore for all the activities and the focus is now on the building, the thing he loves doing most!

Accuracy Basses usa -

At ACCURACY BASSES our luthiers and electronic technicians have more than 15 years of experience in the manufacturing of musical instruments.

All our basses are completely handmade, from the initial design to the finished result. We use the best woods from all over the world in order to achieve optimum lightness, sturdiness and sound. The manufacturing process used by our luthiers provides our instruments with a surprising low action and makes for ease of playing.

We design and manufacture our own circuitry and pickups after carrying out hundreds of tests in our laboratory. This ensures that our instruments have well-defined, pure notes with long sustain. Some of our models even have a circuitry specially designed and matched to the pickups to consistently produce the best tone.

When you order your instrument, you can also choose the top. We offer a great range, from maple to the more exotic buckeye or redwood, all of the highest quality and many that are Mastergrade.

In Accuracy Basses our passion is all about basses and our obsession is all about quality. For this reason we promise you many fulfilling years of playing when you buy one of our instruments, and we give you a 6-year guarantee.

F Basses -

F Bass has been handcrafting instruments out of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada since 1978. Their main focus is building 4, 5, & 6 string bass guitars ranging from vintage inspired basses to modern electric/upright hybrids and everything in between.

""Our models have evolved over three decades of designing, creating, repairing and studying other instruments. This process has led to a terrific combination of fat, natural sound, superb feel, exciting new look, and a comfortable weight balance. We hope refinements such as these create a niche away from instruments that sound and feel "high-tech". 

At F bass, quality and craftsmanship are the standards by which we live. Even though we build for today's player, we want our instruments to play and feel like great vintage basses.

I am extremely proud of our F basses, as are the musicians who play them." -  George Furlanetto
