Bass Guitars built for sound, built for beauty, built to last.
As a serious musician, your instrument should be carefully crafted in all aspects of it; the woods, the components, the weight and balance, the ergonomics, everything.
At Mana Basso, we only make high quality bass guitars. Every bass comes standard with a multi-laminate through body neck with the headstock carved from the neck, not glued on. All woods we select go through a rigorous assessment to insure excellent tone, high strength and stability, and of course luscious visual appeal. Also as a standard, we include both neck and bridge pickups to capture the full timbre of the instrument. To give them a bit of a boost, our unique magnetic-field enhancement goes in every bass as well.
Thanks for checking out Mana Basso.
Huge sound. Articulate. Dynamic.

“Master Bass builder Tony from Mana Basso came through with the goods”
Shiah David Coore – Bassist with Damian Marley, after getting a Mana Basso Glade 5 string during the Marley brothers' Catch A Fire tour.
"The band was BLOWN away by your artistry/craftsmanship, sonically they couldn't believe the difference in clarity/punch/warmth/presence/tone etc. I want to tell you that my hands were somehow much more relaxed and comfortable playing her than any bass i've owned, which amazes me being on a longer scale, wider 6 string. My chops and 'sight' on the fretboard opened up to greater degree playing through our tunes from sheer comfort and pure inspiration! I'm beyond grateful Tony!!"
Rick Bouvette - bassist for Joy Tribe, the first day after receiving 'Synchronicity', his Glade 6 string custom build
“You are OFFICIALLY a Master Bass Maker. Your Street Credentials have been upgraded to Baller Status. That is all. Carry on...”
