I am considering upgrading my Bulgarian carved bass (purchased from a certain Mr Gollihur 3 years ago). One of the names that keeps cropping up is Gliga (Romania). I would be looking at one of their top-end models i.e. the Professional (Gama) or Maestro series. Does anyone have any views on these instruments? The general feeling I get from the searches I have made on these forums are that they are generally good instruments - made well and from good quality wood (Carpathian spruce tops etc.). Some posters have mentioned that even though they are well made, they are also fairly heavily built (i.e. overly thick tops - which is an issue that I have with the Bulgarian). If anyone owns or has owned/played one of these instruments I would be grateful for any info./opinions. Thanks.
