    Curious about the dark color separations in the top and back. Is it actual wood there or some kind of filler? Was a neck block installed after its "accident"? Where in Missouri is the bass? Who did the restoration? Thanks!

    The color separations are simply the varnish. There is no putty in this bass. As you can see from the attached photo, the bass retains its original foot and an area around the foot on the back has been doubled for strength and stability. I don't know that this bass was ever involved in an accident, however with a bass of this age, who knows? The restoration was done by my partner, Jamey Logan. We are located in Kansas City, MO. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or you may want to contact Jamey Logan directly. He can be reached at 816-521-1081. Thanks for your interest.

    This bass looks beautiful (and looks like it sounds great). I am from St. Louis but in NYC now. If I was still in Missouri I would love to drive over and check it out! If I'm back any time soon I'll look to see if it's still for sale ;)
