  1. Just got one of these, and I love it! But I can't find the website for them or their distributors, any help?

    They were a Japanese company that went out of business a couple years back. I don't know that they ever had a "distributor", because they were a small production handmade company. They are no longer in business, as far as I'm aware.

    Armand Sabal-Lecco, who used to play with Paul Simon (maybe still does) was an endorser of Bossa Basses.

    What model do you have, Hex?

    Beautiful! I love Bossa Basses! I still drool over the Bossa J 5's that Josh Paul and Greg Bissonette have...definitely in my top 5. :)
