Hello everyone! Thank you in advance for your time and help. I am a long-time TalkBass forum reader. I found so much great information that has helped me immensely in my playing, building, Etc. I need some expert help regarding my double bass. I purchased this upright double bass and was told that it was an Engelhardt Bass, which I believed. I wasn't as knowledgeable then and didn't look for The Tell-Tale inside sticker. I know that stickers can fall off of bases and I am hoping that is the case, but I know I could be wrong and this is NOT an Engelhardt. Here is what I know . . . . This bass is an all plywood base. Inside the f-holes have been painted or stained black. The back and sides of this bass are maple and the top is spruce based on the wood appearance. I'm fairly certain the tailpiece is made of Ebony. Has an adjustable Bridge currently that I'm fairly certain was carved specifically for this bass. Has X's marked where the notches were cut out. Not completely sure if this was original to the bass. The bass has Gamba corners. I am not sure what the bass fingerboard is made of. The neck is maple, but I don't know if the finger board is jatoba Brazilian cherry or not. I believe this is an ebonized or dyed black wood species. The wood does have a couple of spots that appear to be "knots". I took pictures of the back of the fingerboard as well. The inside of the bass has some white drips. Also has the number 16 I believe as a measurement number. No "ribs" on the inside of the bass. The overall color of the bass is not so much an orange sunburst. I would almost describe this as having an overall red hue. Hints of brown stain. There is no gloss finish, it is a satin matte type of finish. The inlaid / filling does not appear to be painted on, but set in due to running my finger over it you can feel a slight raise in some areas. Almost appears to be a red type of detail in between the two black lines as well. Is there a minimally invasive way to tell if this is inlaid purfling or painted? The inside of the scroll appears to be dyed or painted much like the inside of it at the f holes. Can anybody identify this bass? Can anybody identify the type of glue that is the white drips on the bottom of the bass and the type of glue that is holding together the sides and the top scenes of the spruce top to the sides based on the pictures? Thank you for your expertise!
