Every single Tonfuchs Bass is a handmade product. This might take a bit longer and can sometimes be exhausting. So, if we go through the trouble and put so much effort and passion into each instrument, we do not want to spoil the result with inferior ingredients. That means no compromises in the woods, hardware, tuners, pickups, pots and capacitors that are used.

Wood: Our lumber storage is very extensive and is continuously being expanded. The amount of wood purchased each year is greater than the amount that leaves the workshop in the form of a finished bass. We only use woods that have been aged and air-dried for several years. Among many other criteria, this is the most important point. Under these circumstances, it may be that some wood types of a certain vintage are not infinitely available. Before we build an instrument with immature wood, we prefer not to build one at all.
