Hi everybody, 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... measurements. Upper: 21.5 Mid: 14.5 Lower 26.5 Rib depth 10.5 String length 41 LOB 44 pictures here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10153536451860134.1073741828.675505133&type=1&l=f4f06cf20c If anyone has any idea's on this bass I'd be most appreciative.
