  1. After playing electric bass for 12 years, and upright for 2, I fnally got my first upright today!

    It's a solid bass, 3/4 with flat back, ca 1920: (sorry for the goofy pics, been up since 5 AM, it's 10 PM here now)

    I'm very satisfied!

    Looks pretty! When was it refinished? Congrats and enjoy your first DB! Are you a lefty or are pics reversed?
     
  4. I think it was recently, because it has been repaired with plexiglass as well. Recently as in the last 10/20 years.

    No, I'm not a lefty, it's just Photo Booth playing tricks!
     
  5. BTW, can anyone recommend a pickup/preamp? I'll mainly be playing jazz, pizzicato!

    Plexiglass?

    Look weird backwards like that. :D
     
  7. Ooops, I meant fiberglass, obviously....too late to be making sense!

    The backwards thing is thanks to Photo Booth in OSX!
