A team of intrepid ISB makers, led by Paul Hart, Boyd Poulsen and Dustin Williams, are going to try to Build-A-Bass in just one week – varnish and all.  Drop by the opera theater workshop to watch the work in progress, ask questions and maybe even lend a hand.

This will be a bass like no other, and you could be the proud owner!

Raffle tickets are for sale only to convention attendees at the convention registration desk, $50 for one and the price per ticket goes down the more tickets you buy. The name of the lucky winner will be drawn on Friday night, just before the first evening concert. Need not be present to win!* Special thanks to our 2015 Build-a-Bass sponsor Upton Bass String Instrument Co.
