Help ID upright!
This bass belongs to the bass player of a band called cutthroat shamrock. And is amazing looking! !!!!!
Anyone know who built it?

Having trouble posting link :( can anyone link there YouTube video fly away?

That video doesn't do it justice.
Pretty sure it's a King (as in the now defunct King Doublebass co.).

That's definitely a King Doublebass badge on the button.

Thank you so much! I cant get my phone to post pics here for some reason!!!!??? And cant get it to link either:(
There is also another pic of the front looks like it is from the same photo shoot but I cant git it to post even though I resized it.
But anyway that thing is amazing looking!!! Is that just a lament ontop the ply?

Yeah, they mostly did fancy paintjobs or fancy veneers over plywood. Real pretty basses. This looks like it could be either; thinking aloud, this one was possibly a NAMM show special or something as I don't remember them offering this finish or wood combo.
Hopefully someone out there knows and will chime in.

Only thing I dont like about it is the tail piece. Other than that it was made for me!!!

Typical for a KDB. They almost always had that beveled metal tailpiece stock.
|Rebop ||09-04-2013 05:02 PM |
I think the blood may have been added afterwards. I've never seen that on a KDB. Again, may have been a NAMM special or something.
They usually look like this:

I wouldn't mind the stock tail piece but the blood and scrapped look just doesn't do that amazing looking bass justice!!!! Wonder how it sounds acoustic!
