SOLD: Bohemian Double Bass 1890s

Late 19th Century smaller gamba-pattern flat back, just sorted by Upton including new bridge and fingerboard. Extended plank for the soloist. New Evahs.

Could be an ideal chamber music instrument, or a soulful jazz bass with a smaller footprint (well under 20 lbs!).  Bright, quick voice, very responsive and warm.  This reminds us of the Italian Pearwood bass we had last year, valued at nearly $100K.

Absolutely magnetic vintage piece!  Refreshed and ready – add a Rev Solo and a Mooradian bag and gig for 125 more years.
