I have just bought this bass at auction in the UK.
I'm trying to learn more about its origin.
The quality of wood on it is pretty special...
I believe it could be french purely down to the fact the gears look french and they have stamped on them E.IRROY MIRECOURT like the gears on this... http://www.contrabass.co.uk/2353.htm
but i understand that gears do not identify a bass alone...
Rib depth 10.5
String length 41

If anyone has any idea's on this bass I'd be most appreciative.
