SOLD: John Juzek 1950s Prague Label Double Bass

Offered here is what we believe is a post-war (50s) John Juzek Upright Bass, pre-restoration. Upton Bass has not gone through this instrument at all and we know there are some who would like to get in “ground level” on a vintage instrument which could be a pearl in the rough. The unrestored price reflects that.  Could be a perfect instrument for the vintage mojo bargain hound planning restoration in the future or in stages!

 

[The price of this bass with the restoration would be $8,000]  

Restoration would involve a new hand-carved deluxe European spruce top, finished matching and built to deceive.  Also included would be a new nut, fingerboard, bridge with adjusters and carbon finder endpin.

Lower Bout:  25.75″
