    Hi guys,

    Im looking into potentially buying this bass but wanted a few second opinions. Its being sold as a Lamy, but it looks a bit German to me. There is no label in the bass, but its priced very reasonably. What you think from these photos, french or german?

    So, perhaps neither a Lamy nor a lami. :)

    Thanks Steve,

    Slightly embarrassed to ask the question, but what is a 'bohemian' bass?

    Good call. While drinking coffee it looks Bohemian or Saxon - hard to tell without a better look at the button and scroll...

    Pics are too small to see much of anything, at least for me.

    To me its a Th.Lamy bass (the more budget friendly level from what i can see from the pics) and i have seen and played more than one like this . Normally those basses have that typical clear french sound that some pizz players like.

    looks like very late mirocourt to me 1920's perhaps, cant tell but probably has a beach neck and scroll.
     
  13. French tuners but hard to tell much with the small res of the photos.
