Joh. Schmerel bass ca. 1910
This REMARKABLE bass came in with a failing old button repair, and required a long sequence of revision of other old repairs in addition. It has a new bass bar, and all old cracks have been newly cleaned out, glued, and cleated. Repair labels from 1955 and 1952. We believe it to be from a maker's shop (as opposed to a factory-style, large production workshop), as its original carving was quite meticulous and the varnish a bit different than an ordinary workshop bass. The tone for the price is incomparable! Snap up this bass without delay.
