Now here is a curious idea, from Ritter, makers of some seriously funky looking basses: Bass Omakase. What’s that? You say… Omakase is a Japanese term meaning “I’ll leave it to you” (or I’ll entrust you). Rather than ordering something specific from the menu, you leave it up to the chef to surprise (and delight) you with their best offering – it also helps the restaurant manage their food costs, as they can draw from the ingredient they have to hand and love…
Ritter says this:
Just provide some basic instructions regarding your taste ** (e.g. model, number of strings, fretted or not, …), and Chef Jens will take care of the rest.
Your hand made instrument will be personally and creatively built by Jens Ritter.
Throughout the process you will receive some “hint pictures”, to give you a small taste of what’s to come, discovering the full instrument only at the very end.
When finished, your instrument will get its own name and enter the exclusive Royal family.
You place the order, you get some teaser pictures, and then you get (knowing Ritter) and amazing bass.
So, what do you think?
