Rhys Gates--freelance bassist,  Oregon--

plays a little Bach on his Mill St. Milanese (#30). Plug into some real speakers for best results.

Rhys and Seth designed the ribs on #30 to be slightly less deep than standard (8 3/4 at the end pin; 5 1/4 at the heel) for increased accessibility. 

 

The top is of straight grained pine in two pieces cut on the

quarter. The two piece flat back and the sides are western maple cut on the quarter. The neck and scroll are maple as well.

The string length is 40 7/8 inches.

 

Body length w/button: 45 1/2 inches

Upper bout: 19 1/2 inches

C- bout: 13 3/4 inches
