Any info on this bass/maker?
Hey all. Although I've spent a whole lot of time reading things on this forum, I've never posted anything... until now. I recently bought an upright and I was hoping that someone on here could help shed some light on its origin/year/maker. The tag on the inside seems to say O.F. Carlson. But I can't seem to find anything on a luthier with that name.
The bass is fully carved, I'm not certain of the top, but the back and sides look like they may be flame maple. Oh yeah. The soundpost also looks like it has "slick" written on it... Any info from anyone would be much appreciated! I will put up some links to pictures.
