The International Society of Bassists is proud to announce repeat sponsorship of its highly successful bass-building workshop for 2017 at the ISB Convention in Ithaca, New York this coming June. Orchestrated by Dustin Williams of Nashville and directed by master luthier Paul Hart, the program will feature skilled luthiers from around the world collaborating to build 2 basses in an open workshop in one week. This project offers a tremendous opportunity for bass builders to collaborate and network while players, vendors and aficionados get to see what it takes to create a great instrument.
