Sale of Time Machine basses to benefit Parkinson’s disease research


While he’s not sure how much collectors would be willing to pay for the musical artwork, Doner is hoping to find a wealthy supporter of the Parkinson’s cause who is also a musician and fan of the entertainment genre. time travel. The donor believes that finding the right donor / buyer could lead to a donation / sale of $ 10,000 or more.

The time machine’s bass features flashing lights, a selectable destination year display, and a device resembling a flow capacitor. While not designed to be a practical instrument for routine use, the bass sounds and plays like other high end electric bass guitars. High quality components have been used throughout, including a Warmoth body and neck, Nordstrand pickup, Audere preamp, Babicz bridge, and Hipshot tuners.

Eager to return to making guitars, the father and son team began working on a double neck guitar / bass combination inspired by the flamethrower guitar of the Mad Max Fury Road movie. According to Doner, the time machine’s favorable response to the bass is what prompted them to consider another film-inspired theme for their next project.
