Alternative rock band “The Cold and Lovely” are an L.A. based outfit and have just released a new EP “Ellis Bell”. Guitarist Meghan Toohey ( Weepies, Lenka ) and bassist Nicole Fiorentino ( Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt ) both play Bonneville guitars. For Meg I made a Jazz style body from Aged Swamp Ash and fitted it Arcane Inc. hand wound pickups and the neck was styled around a 50′s based neck and Jim Dunlop jumbo frets. I had made a Jazz Styled bass from Swamp Ash, fitted Arcane vintage pickups and with a block inlay 70′s based neck. I had nicknamed it ” Blondie” due to the aged blond based nitrocellulose finish. I showed the bass to Nicole and instantly she fell in love with how it played and sounded so it is now part of her bass arsenal.
Make sure you catch this talented band……sound awesome live!
