"Phen"
 I started working on this project in the beginning of 2009. I decided to take a look back, and to review some of the bass projects I had left on the back burner. The general idea I followed was to remake and redesign one of mine bass models on which I had worked in the earliest years of my practice as a luthier.
 The concept is simple - making a brand new bass model with a comparatively small, compact and balanced body. The hardest part was to discover and balance the thin line of coralation between the size, shape and sound. I am very happy and proud with the outcome!
