Preussguitars stands for absolute premium quality instruments. My longtime experience as a musician and plucked instrument builder allows me creating instruments with an excellent tone and outstanding playing characteristics. On top of that a superb inlay artwork is implemented. Only high quality and classy materials such as matured wood(s), bone, nacre, stainless steel, alpaca, brass etc. are used. Each Preuss instrument has its own process of development and I am always in close contact with the customer. I work on every instrument personally in precise handcraft which always leads to a single, unique and distinctive masterpiece.
I offer the design for a new instrument or any sort of repair / restoration of your (old) personal instrument. In this field I have a treasure trove of experience and even non-standard design ideas are welcome.
I am looking forward to discussing special requests on your instrument with you.
New bass model BigBen
The BigBenBass is a semiacoustic bass with a setneck and a hand carved, arched cherry wood top. It is a new self-contained design. The expanded 5-string has a 35-inch scale with which the strings can be attached or optionally guided through the body. The acoustic properties are amplified by piezopickups integrated into the ETS MarkIII bridge. Two Häussel bassbars with wooden caps are available for the electrical side.
