Rob Vaughn

Encouraged by a cousin who is a bass player, Rob Vaughn started crafting bass guitars about 10 years ago in Boise, Idaho. The name R. Low Vaughn is a combination of Rob and his cousin's middle names.

Starting out Rob was inspired and influenced by luthier Carl Thompson, and over the years he has evolved his own style that is less Thompson and more of his own unique vision for the bass guitar.

The Process

Clients are taken on a first come, first served basis, with a waiting list of 3-6 months, depending on the time of the year, the customization and type of bass ordered.

(Some clients buy multiple basses at one time.)
