Owned for 35 years, but played for only the first 3. It's time for this treasure to move on. I do not have a clear history on the Bass prior to my purchase (purchased from a Berklee prof.) It sure looks like what you think it is, and experienced eyes have confirmed that it has all the construction and design hallmarks of...but no label, so, it is an early-mid 19th century American Bass that is believed to come from New Hampshire. Needs considerable work - but what a sound! Link to more pics http://www.flickr.com/photos/pyratcaptain/sets/72157635444699933/ THIS BASS HAS BEEN SOLD> Thank you for your interest.
