dragonfly are a hand made Japanese brand born of a love of woods, grains, high grade materials and craftsmanship. Each instrument is lovingly crafted by hand with finite attention to detail and with the professional musician in the forefront of their minds.
Harry's Engineering, the company behind this brand, was founded around 25 years ago by Tatsuaki Totani San (AKA Harry), who had previously worked building guitars for Aria ProII back in the 80's
Harry had a vision to build beautiful handcrafted "tools for professional players" with a focus on high quality, versatility, play-ability, comfort and tone. The result is the Dragonfly brand, a brand that is among Japan's finest high end guitars (Tune, Atelier, STR, ESP etc).
Now here at Japan Bass Direct, I can offer you these fantastic instruments at great prices!
Customized builds and payments.
We require a deposit of $400 on dragonfly basses and then can accept installments up until completion. Lead time is 3 months on average, but we can extend payment plans to up to 6 months if necessary.
The deposit can be accepted through Ebay, Reverb, or direct, and the rest can be done by Paypal, credit card or again through Ebay, however Ebay fees will apply in this case (we recommend using Paypal direct) Simply leave your deposit by using the button below
Customizations are limited to the following;
Body wood; Alder, Ash, Walnut, Mahogany
Top woods; Flame / Quilt Maple, ziricote, padauk, burl maple, burl padauk, Japanese Quilted / Flamed Ash / Kurokaki (not limited to these, but subject to stock availability)
Fret board woods; Pauferro, Ebony, Maple, Birdseye Maple, ebony
Pick up cover materials; Walnut, normal black plastic, maple, pau ferro, or other matching top woods are possible.
dragonfly do not offer custom pick up placement, body or scale size change except for on Full Customs which will demand higher prices than customizations.
Payment plans on existing stock
We also allow customers to buy existing dragonfly basses in advance, again a $400 deposit is required through Ebay to reserve the instrument (at this time we will advance the payment for the bass so that it is actually in our custody so to speak), and the balance can be paid off for a period of up to 6 months in installments with 0% interest. If you choose to do this through Ebay extra fees will be required to cover their commission fees so again we recommend doing this outside direct through Paypal or by credit card.
Once the bass is paid off we will ship it to you.
We know these instruments are expensive, but we also know they are WORTH EVERY CENT, (and hey, they aren't actually that pricey for this kind of market) which is why we are here to help you get the bass of your dreams!
