Trading up 2nd carved bass and wish any info on Bernd Dimbath Grancino Copy 2004 bass.
I picked up one of these as well as a Ceruti model from him at the 2005 winter NAMM show. I was quite impressed with both of them.
The one that you are looking at is probably just as great.
Retailer for Paesold, Kolstein, Gill, Calin Wultur, etc.
Strangely enough, I live in Atlanta and I purchased a 2004 Heinrich Gill Grancino Copy. I absolutely love the bass and it has already appreciated 2k. It is extremely responsive, crystal clear sound, and excellent playability. Which dealer are you looking at?
I think they're the same company:
Bernd Dimbath is a real person, not a trade name. Gill is a trade name.
The distributor for Gill violins here in the USA does not offer basses. Bernd Dimbath is a good maker although I doubt he actually makes the bass himself. They make very nice German violins, the wood is great and they are very consistent.
edit: It looks like Steve Swan is able to get Gill basses, sorry for the confusion.
