Ken Bebensee is continually building, designing, playing, creating… Acoustic / Electric Stringed Musical Instruments.   I can build any type of instrument that is imaginable combining the best ideas with artistic spirit and creative impulse.

Each instrument represents articulate individual expression.  Most of the photos here are of instruments that were custom ordered and built with specifications to follow.  Some of the ideas were customer requests and some customers encouraged or allowed me to add creative shapes or embellishment.  Iwork to satisfy the soul.  I like how natural shapes evolve and the fun part of building instruments is carving and shaping.

Please comment on pictures.

  1. i will make some more basses like this one. the carved scroll comes from the tradition of violin making. My interpretation for this bass and much of my carving art is mused by nature and growth.
