I've been playing Double Bass for 4 years now and own a fully carved bass. Through the years it's developed and seasoned and has recieved a good amount of wear and dings but I consider it character of the instrument... Do you guys like keeping your instrument super nice and clean or like the old character type bass? I've saw some nice geriatric old Double basses sound excessive and gigantic - beautiful sounding! In my opinion I really love the look of an old seasoned Double bass to a new one. How about you?
