SOLD: Neville Whitehead Double Bass 1986


Neville Whitehead double bass from 1986. Neville has been building basses and cellos near Sydney Australia for over 40 years.  Very much an “Italian-masters-via-English-craftsman” style in the legacy of Hawkes, and more recently George and Thomas Martin.  Stoutly built, wide upper bout, the build is exquisitely crafted without extra ornament.  The quality of the fine flamed Maple back and sides and the precision of the lutherie serve as understated decoration.


An impressive stout Australian contrabass with choice maple
