The Electric Bajo is becoming one of the most popular instrument in the Tex-Mex and Norteño scene. Mr. Jimenez also custom makes the Electric Bajo to your specifications.

Each electric quinto bajo is hand made by Layo Jimenez using top quality Rosewood, Mahogany, and Sitka Spruce wood.

El maestro Layo Jimenez has been making bajo sextos and quinto bajos for over thirty five years. As a former conjunto musician from Santa Rosa, Texas, Mr. Jimenez knows and understands the bajo. Each bajo sexto is made to achieve optimal quality in craftsmanship and sound.

These fine quality bajo sextos and quinto bajos are made from the finest woods with neck reinforcement made out of tempered aluminum. For the back and sides, Mr. Jimenez uses Indian Rosewood, Claro Walnut, and Mahogany. For the top, Sitka Spruce and Western Red Cedar. Other exotic woods can be used such as the Brazilian Rosewood. Mr. Jimenez will custom make your bajo to your own personal needs.

This flying V bajo quinto was made by Layo Jimenez. It is probably the only one like this in the world. It plays great. However, this is on display at my office since it is a very unique and one of a kind bajo quinto.

I own one of the Bajos in the above pictures. The one where it shows mr. Jimenez's different style of Bajos. It's the first one on the left with the white pickguard. I bought this bajo used and I must say I love it it's really loud and has the best action of all my Bajos. Mr Jimenez is a master bajo maker.

This full body Jimenez Bajo Sexto was made for my good friend David Champion from Weslaco, Texas. I was testing it for him when I was visiting Mr. Jimenez at his shop in west Sacramento. The sound is incredible and the action was a beauty. David is one lucky guy.

This is a Jimenez bajo quinto that Layo made for me back in 2001. You can hear the great sound of my bajo on this vieo clip with my friend Pedro Hernandez.

I bought one of the H. (Hohner) Jimenez Bajo Quintos from Ted Brown Music Tacoma, Wa. Paid $689.00 I have had it for approximately 15 months. The Quinto has very decent action, the sound in my opinion is very good to excellent probably not as good as a hand made one but overall I am satisfied with the craftsmanship and the playability of this very affordable bajo. It comes with an SA seymour Duncan pickup and a gig bag. No problems with it so far.
