I am interested in buying a bass in an internet auction. The only info the owner is able to give me is that it was new in the mid sixties and that it is made in Czechoslovakia. There is no makers name. Does anyone have a similar bass and if so can you give me any more info? Do they make really cheap basses or are Czech basses usually to be trusted? If I go to see this bass, what sort of things should I be looking out for? I currently have a cheap bass (a Palatino) and want one of better quality sound-wise and have only started to play again recently after a break of about 30 years so don't know an aweful lot about them! Thanks for any insight you are able to give.
