Good instruments of Chinese origins, constructed from well aged tonewoods. String Emporium stands behind their basses for years to come. I tried a laminate and a hybrid and both were decent, well made basses. Their appearance reminds me the Shen double basses, another safe choice. Feel free to contact Steve in String Emporium, he's a man to do business with.
