Testimonial

HOOK 4

I had considered buying a custom bass for years, but most options I looked into seemed so impersonal and not very custom.

Best Bass Gear.com featured a beautiful deep red bass by Lower Groove Guitars, located in my state, and not that far away from me. The pictures of the HOOK 5 bass that was built for a previous client looked like a killer instrument, which made up my mind to take the five hour drive to see what he had to offer. I took a trip out to Dodge City and met with Steve, there
were instruments
all around the shop in various stages of construction and finishing.

One look and I knew immediately, he was the guy I wanted to have build my first custom bass.

The purple HOOK 4 bass I chose is the most comfortable instrument I’ve ever played. I love the body design, it’s perfectly balanced, light, and the satin finished maple neck plays like a dream. The EMG pickups and the BQC active EQ system offer unbelievable tone and flexibility. All things that seemed to be lacking in the J Bass I played for years. It’s now resting peacefully!

 

Steve’s craftsmanship and attention to detail is impeccable. I have owned some high-end basses from the so-called popular brands and none come close to matching the overall quality, construction, and feel of this bass. Far beyond the production line instruments you find in many stores. In addition to the Hook bass, I also enjoy playing his one-off MT bass, my first purchase from Lower Groove.

 
I used to look at my basses as tools to get a job done, but when I first got my hands on this bass it struck me as much more than just another tool, but a piece of art. The craftsmanship and playability of this bass is high end and definitely in the custom

shop or boutique world. You won’t be disappointed with one of his instruments in your hands!

BADAZZ

Beau Rodriguez

Working with Steve was a one of a kind experience.To see my 'Badazz' guitar get built from scratch was amazing.

Steve kept in contact during the build process and reached out to me to ensure my preferences for this instrument were met.

This made me feel and realize that Steve’s pride behind his work is top notch.

I was also gifted with another model for temporary use called the 'Slyder'. This guitar has been played by multiple musicians,

but you could hardly tell when you picked it up and plugged it in. Every time I play a show I have people

coming up and complementing me on both of these guitars.

They sound and play just as beautiful as they look!

I must say, Lower Groove Guitars are perfectly crafted, finely set up, and built to last.

Jorge is also a member of the Lower Groove team.  I am more than satisfied with my guitar.

Much Love, Beau
