Charles Cote Basses was a bass manufacturing business run out of Tampa Florida by the Cote brothers - while at the same time playing and recording in the band "The Reverse Engineers". The business folded around 1999. According to Charles Cote:

“A large percentage of our basses were being purchased by a distributor in Japan, and when the yen crashed, they had to cancel their orders. That’s when we knew we had to close up the shop,”
