I am interested to know if anyone out there knows about this bass or has a similiar one I have been told that my bass is possibly around 50 years old. It plays well enough and has recently has an ebony board and tailpeice fitted. It has two identical stickers inside the bass with this written on each Melodiya, Menges, Sloveniya, tovarna, glasbenih, instrumentov. (Some of it is hard to read) The bass has a carved top and a flat back with a slope near the top. The varnish is light giving the bass a pleasant orange tinge. When I got the bass it did not have an ebony board or tailpeice but looked as though the neck had come off at some point so it may not be the original neck. there used to be the number 66 etched into the butt of the neck at the back of the bass.
