EPIC 4 Part David Searle Video Interview!

EPIC 4 part video interview with master luthier David Searle!
In this hour long conversation we cover everything from tonewoods and scale length, to active vs passive and what to look for when buying your first bass. David's work is truly exceptional as many of you are already aware, and it was great to get a chance to try so many of his creations.
Stay tuned for bass demo videos coming soon!
Check out Pt.1 of the interview here:

Massive thanks to David for taking the time out to come and share his thoughts and for bringing so many basses with him! I hope you enjoy our conversation. :)
