Carl Thompson
  Carl Thompson is a legendary bass luthier and jazz musician based in New York. He is responsible for several innovations in bass guitar design including the 6-string and Piccolo basses. His work can be seen as played by legends such as Stanley Clarke and Les Claypool of Primus. In addition to designing the site, I also maintain it for Carl. The site provides a vast amount of information and images as well as sells T-shirts and instruments from time to time.


The official Carl Thompson website currently houses nearly 3,000 images of Carl's instruments. The average price of one of his basses is nearly $5,000.
