    This is a great sounding Czech or Bohemian bass from mid to late 1800's for sale. This bass projects well and has a lot of volume and sustain. It has a big sound plucked or bowed. The upper register really sings and the bass is clear and even from the top to the bottom. It is really easy to play too. I think it would be very difficult to find anything as good as this one in this price range.

    Has had a number of repairs to it over the years but all are stable and bass is healthy and doesn't require any work.

    Fairly standard 3/4 size bass with a 41.5" string length.

    Measurements are:
    Upper Bout: 20.5"
    Middle: 14.75"
    Lower Bout: 25.5"
    Total length: 72"
    Rib Depth at neck: 6.5"
    Rib Depth at bottom: 8"
    String Length: 41.5"

    Located in Brooklyn, NY.


    SOLD

    Looks like a nice instrument! Can you comment on the interesting-looking block by the neck heel? Does it have a structural purpose or is it just to change neck from Eb to D (for example)?

    Yes, it's just to change the neck from Eb to D. It's not permanently installed.
