Abraham Prescott Double Bass, c1820s, Deerfield, New Hampshire

Classic Busetto shape on this early Prescott – looks to have been built earlier than the more uniform, later Concord, N.H. Prescotts. Gloss varnish brings out the detail of the sugar Maple – original old-growth American timber!  An older restoration in very strong playing shape – super-responsive with that thunderous Prescott fundamental.
