It features violin corners and a slim upper bout, echoing a centuries-old design. Also has some unique weathering and antiquing to complete the aged vibe (along with a few dings and actual repairs).

My son has a maybe $3K flatback bass that the back supports are coming loose. Can we fix this without taking the top off? Or do we need to find a bass luthier somewhere in the wilds of Idaho?
Seen it a thousand times!!!!! friggin idiots
I am the one who made this repair. It's not gorrila glue. I use hide glue in all of my repairs. I've actually think this is a good idea. Paper is another form of wood. 🤔 Seams tend to open imho it's going to have a little harder time to open with the paper as a back up. The bass bar was off when I got it. Attached with hide glue and reinforced with paper and hide glue. When I got this bass together it sounded awesome. It projected like it was amplified. My educational is background a researcher. Hence, I took a risk. Back in the day art projects used wet paper soaked in flour and water. Hmmmm ! This paper deal is an idea worthy of discussion. I am open to ridicule, but be nice about it. Everyone has ideas that are not so popular. But let's think this one through. I've seen basses with silk/linen - why not paper? I've done this three times. My name is in one of them, because I wanted this discussion. Yes, Sam Rivers Beatrice is one of my favorite tunes. 🤗
