Mensinger are a custom guitar and bass company based in Poland who produce some absolutely stunning handcrafted instruments. As with their electric guitar range every bass they produce is available left handed and each one is fully customizable within reason at a price that will blow you away…
Because every single instrument is hand-made, Mensinger encourages you to look at the standard instruments as a starting point for your own dreams and ideas. If you see something you like get in contact with them and they should be able to build any model to suit your specific requirements. For a custom, hand-built bass guitar the prices are incredibly impressive. If you like a model as it is, check out the main distributor Public Peace (link below) for current left handed stock.
The Mensinger site is currently only available in Polish, so I’ve tried my best to give an adequate brief description of each model. You’ll need to ensure your browser has some translation software built in before venturing over to the Mensinger website! Let’s take a look…
