    I'm looking for a bass with a smaller upper bout, something under 20" It can be a modern or old bass, but preferably made by a french luthier or made in the style of french basses. In particular basses by Charles Queniol or any Collin-Mezzin Sr. or Jr. (pre 1932). I would also be interested in any modern French luthier such as Jean Array or Christian Laborie. It doesn't necessarily have to be for sale. I'm mostly just trying to get a feel for what they play like, so I can figure out if i'd like to buy one. I live in the Chicago area and i'd be willing to drive anywhere in the Midwest if i can find the time!
