Hey, a few months ago, I bought an Andreas Morelli, violin model, about 1914 I think. The reason I think the date is about right, is that I found an exact duplicate on Hammond Ashleys site. It has the curly-cue purfling design on the back button area and the button has a half-moon ebony inlay on the button. Bob Ross is restoring it for me. He had to re-carve part of the scroll because of a machine install, the likes of which you've never seen! I've had two other basses by Andreas in my career. They were both violin models and Bob Monroney has a gamba shaped one. My question...Do any of you guys know anything about Andreas? I only know that he was Italian, but worked in Germany, so he's considered a German maker. I'll be selling this bass when Bob finishes, but I like to learn something about all the basses I have in my life. Arnold, Jeff, Bob, anyone?
