Bohemian Double Bass c1920, A.E. Schnitzer Restoration

This large early 20th Century Bohemian double bass sounds phenomenal and plays great. Careful AES restoration plus new neck set and scroll from Upton gives it strength, playability and resonance. The result is a super-responsive large vintage flatback with as-new tuning and playing surfaces. A denizen of the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra, it has enjoyed excellent maintenance. Original scroll included.
