    I want to say hello all as I just joined the forum today.
    I do have a upright that I've had for years but have no idea what kind it is.
    I guess that really dosen't matter other than being curious.
    Anyone have any idea?

    From the pics so far, it looks to be a Plywood Bass. With the FB looking to be Rosewood, if that is original I would guess it to be American made. All the German/Czech made Plywood Basses I have seen have Ebony or black stained FBs. I could be wrong about the FB but that is a Plywood Bass. Sound and condition is the most important thing here and not the Brand. Just my $.02.

    Thanks Ken.
    There's no marking or writing of any kind inside the body.
    I've just always been courious of what kind it is.
    It does have a rosewood fingerboard .I've had it resurfaced years ago to remove a dent that was in it when I bought it.
    It sounds good to me ,full and rich.
    Then again ,I haven't played too many others.
    By the way,you make some killer basses.
    Thanks again,
    Bill
