Hades 12-String Basses

Hades 12-string basses were produced in a very limited quantity by October Guitars. October was looking for an import line of basses and guitars to supplement their USA-made custom shop instruments. Made in Korea, the quality was sufficiently good that the decision was made to incorporate the Hades basses into the regular October line and carry the October name. Only one shipment of Hades brand 12-string basses was produced, and according to Tony Leicht at October Guitars, there are only 15 of the Hades 12-string basses in existence.
