Tryin' to fool with my new digital camera. Thought this might be of interest.
Very nice. That looks like Todd Coolman's old bass. What is it?
last, for now.
This head was carved by Fausto Casalini who lived in Faenza, Italy. 1908-1938. Made only basses[gets my vote]. The bass itself has tons of personality.
hey, shows us a pic of the whole bass, now I am curious!
Nice pictures. What kind of camera (pixels?) did you use. AND are you using this lions head for a pattern?
Nice detail. Even the lion's eyeballs have pupils (corneas?)!
Dat's purty, don't it?
What's on the tip of its nose? A lion biscuit?
Not yet, Ed-but I am working on one now as we speak. It's not a copy of this lion though. Most lion's you see are all snarly and stuff-the one I am working on is very serene and collected. Do I know how to carve a lion's head? No, but that never stopped me before.
I'll post some pics of this bass later this weekend. Funny, this thread seemed to generate more interest than the Stooge bass one. Considering this crowd, that surprizes me.
ps to Bob-the camera is a Sony DSC-P51.
Oh, Ye of little faith....
Considering the "Detail Freak" that Fausto Casalini must have been, that's probably the lion biscuit he stuck on the lion's nose to make it keep looking straight ahead like that for him.
I see that he DID have limits to his patience, though (or maybe the lion just wouldn't hold still any longer), because he only included the fangs, not all of the teeth.
Nice clean pics.
Think you need to brush the teeth and Q-Tip the ears.
I think she'll be fine with it as long as you don't commission a ****head scroll for your working axe. Man, I wonder what Jeff would charge for that?
Yeah it is for sale-not by me though. I try to steer clear of selling anything but my own basses. I can put you in touch with the seller though. Just gimmee a call-516-867-1395
Maybe we need a well designed bass gallery, just for our enlightment.
When trying to track down the real pedigree of Donausorus' Vampire bass with the fine bass luthiers of Paris (James Chauvelin, Alain Bejuy), the discussion of details regarding bass making was absolutely fascinating.
