    I got this bass from a guy in London who purchased a home that had this bass in the attic for about 5 years..The people who sold him the home said to do what ever he wanted with it.. I was told by two great luthiers that the bass is German.. The bass clearly shows that it was once three string and was converted to four..The molding around the bass is awesome also. All I want is some info on the bass if possible and if anyone believes 100 percent it being German or maybe English...

    I saw it on Uk ebay a while ago. I believe it is 100% German.

    You should try Ken Smith's forum. He's good at these kind of id questions, but he's banned here.
