Steve Wishnevsky has been an instrument maker for over thirty years. He concentrates on making simple cleanly constructed string instruments with locally harvested woods at very affordable prices. His instruments are stripped of non-essential ornamental flourishes, giving them a home-made, folk-art look. He is said to dislike using too much metal in his instruments and some of his guitars are made without truss rods.

Wishnevsky custom fretless basses are some of the most unusual you can find.  Steve is a keen gardener and also an author.

Instruments are made to order, with usually a 2 month waiting list. His prices are very reasonable for a custom builder.
