    The B extension was installed when the bass was restored-- don't think there was such a thing in 1840!
    Like most of the Prescott school basses, it probably was originally a 3 stringer

    I had a very similar bass, now owned by Paul Sikivie. Great American pedigree basses. Full of yankee charm and sub-organ-pedal-like spread. Powerful and resonant. I had mine strung with guts at one point and the pizz was to die for.

    Never tried guts on her, but the previous owner, who was a big guy, played jazz gigs all over northern NE with it.
