We judge this bass to be a Bohemian double bass, it’s origins somewhere in the western two-thirds of the traditional Czech Lands. It was created with the type of wood we wish could get our hands on today, with a beautiful broad flame complimenting the shape of the upright bass.
The relief carving of the lower wings of the f holes shows fine attention to detail in the overall making of the instrument. The L figured neck sides and back are very well matched and have a beautiful broad flame. The spruce of the top of this Bohemian double bass is a nice tight grain spruce – a pleasure to look at.
The top of the bass has a crack here and there, but nothing to worry about overly much considering the quality of the double bass.

We really like this upright bass – we think it would be worth quite a bit more with some work invested in it, but at the moment the owner is keeping it as it is.
