Heartland String Bass Shop Basses

Heartland String Bass Shop produces basses using the finest materials. From unfinished wooden boards to a completed instrument, each piece of the bass is crafted entirely within the shop. By exercising complete control over the process, Chris is able to produces basses of superior quality, playability, and sound.

To place an order for a bass, please contact the shop. Generally basses are completed in 2.5 - 3 months (there is currently no waiting list). Basses require a $5,000 deposit. Upon completion, Chris will deliver the bass to the customer and the customer will have approximately 2 weeks to try out the instrument. If the customer is not satisfied (for any reason), then the bass may be returned to the shop. The deposit will be returned, in full, as soon as the bass sells to someone else. 

 

All basses can be customized based on customer preference.
