Here’s a very special Brescian in our shop, a beautiful instrument that awaits it’s owner. We want to send him a special photo montage for Thanksgiving. We love the dark hand rubbed varnish on this bass, it’s been a reference for many more to follow.
It awaits a Navy sailor who was stationed out of Newport – he had been playing a Standard Hybrid and decide to trade in/trade up prior to getting restationed. So he commissioned this choice flatback Brescian and soon learned he’d be stationed out of Italy at work in the Mediterranean for 3 years! He didn’t want to sell or consign his dream bass, so we offered to let him store it here for free if he didn’t mind people playing it. So here it awaits and we’ll ship it to him whenever he returns home. It’s a stunning instrument and we can’t wait for him to get his hands on it for good – sounds and looks more beautiful than the day it was finished back in 2014!
