From looking on the internet: A company in Ceveland Ohio had a line of instruments and one line was King String Bass. This bass had a logo on the back just right below where the neck is attached to the body. Kind of some flowers, a crown and the letters KING. I was wondering if anyone knows this....Is the logo a decal, or simply a stencil painted on the wood, what? I just wondered how well this emblem application held up on some of these instruments that would be getting some years on them. I think the logo is interesting, it puts me in the mind of the Bass having a "tattoo" .
