IF you know Hawkes basses…and we don’t just mean by sight…we mean really knowing them. How the corners of the ribs feel, the way they come together. The size and shape of the exterior linings. The way the arch is shaped. The accumulation of all these small details leads us to believe this bass was made in the same German workshop that made many of the Hawkes basses. This one bearing the Juzek label, and clearly not made for the Hawkes workshop, is perhaps one of the more interesting Juzek labeled basses we have seen.
