Sweet! Any idea of the instrument's history?
Yes, since it actually IS a new instrument. Built by Jed Kriegel, scroll carving by Sten Havumaki. Although I'm told that Jed imports the bodies in white and finishes them in his shop. That scroll looks like it's been up ther for a coupla centuries, though, don't it?
Congratulations, Ed! It looks great.
(whistles in admiration..) Removable neck, or is the little hole below the button for something else?
Love those tuners too.
Kudos to Mr. Pavluki for the scroll carving.
Didn’t realize there were craftsmen still doing this kind of detail these days.
What wonderful work!
Is that back made of ash?
Congrats. Is it setup the same as your other bass?
It's rare to see antiquing that looks this legit. It doesn't looked antiqued, it looks old. Congrats to Jed and Ed!
Stunning. And Spiros with Oliv D/G .....
I'll ask, but pretty sure it's maple....
They make them in the shop. Check out Jed's website for close ups of the tuners and the neck removal mechanism.
Yup, removable neck. The mechanism that attaches the neck also allows you to adjust your string height, so it's a one piece bridge on there.
He's gonna kill me, it's Sten HAVUMAKI. His shop is called Oak & Laurel Woodworking. Sorry Sten!!
Wow! Love it!
Major props to Mr. HAVUMAKI!
Again, it looks a beautiful instrument with a stunning topper!
Audio clips or didn`t happen! Anyhow, corgeous bass, congrats!!! Havumaki is propably finnish origin, Havumäki, beautiful work. I dig the Spiro / Oliv setup too.
I'm still playing around with it a little bit. Jed had it set up with the same string height, but it feels so much looser on this bass that I'm experimenting with increasing the height a little bit. The Spiros were definitely a nice surprise on this bass, the feel like they're a much lower tension than when I played them in the past.
Dang! Just beautiful! If she plays and sounds as good as she looks, you're set. Congrats to all involved. Stunning work!
