Hello fellow dark-siders. I've had my bass since April and have been posting on this site, but it's taken this long to get pictures of it organised. Digital camera, Santa? I've played bass guitar for 30 years but increasingly have been involved lately in acoustic music. A cash bonus for having completed 25 years with my employer allowed me to buy this. It's Chinese made and carries the name "Westbury" inside. It's fully carved, the top is spruce and the back and ribs are maple. The pictures don't show off the grain very well, but she looks lovely. The tailpiece is boxwood, the fingerboard ebony. I had an adjustable bridge fitted and she's strung with Spirocore Weichs. I don't play arco at all (don't have a bow yet), but the pizz sound is very nice - not as loud as some but great sustain and a lovely singing "mwah" sound. You can get a great growl from the E-string, although it's a bit weaker in volume than I'd like and I may substitute a heavier E one day. But loving it so far! Doug.
