Take this opportunity to acquire this lovely, early 20th century French bass. In excellent condition, it features a ‘pear’ shape with sloped shoulders, pierced peg box, original celluloid thumb pieces on the tuners, and a fingered C extension. Easy and gratifying to play; very good fingerboard, very accessible upper positions, quick response. Warm sound that’s even across the register. Plenty of volume. Rich, "dark caramel" varnish color is elegant and well-done. The bass has been very well cared-for and retains its original gloss.An outstanding asset for all types of playing!
