Do I need to learn to read sheet music in order to play the bass? There are TABS out there, right? I've even written songs and can play them on my bass - without ever learning to sight-read.

In addition to being expertly crafted musical instruments, Tino Tedesco basses are also true works of art, both in design and appearance.

I have always been fascinated by the principle usually associated with architecture and design stating that form follows function and my main goal in the last 10 years has been to offer outstanding instruments that stay true to this statement."
