My Bass ... ??

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by keithconn, Nov 29, 2001.


  1. Anyone know anything about my bass? I paid 350.00 for it used. It is a Carlo Robelli(sam ash). However I have never seen it in stores. It is all natural finish. It has a maple core, mahog neck thru design with maple stringers. The top and back of the body are a darker wood that kinda looks like walnut. I think it looks and plays outstanding, and people have said that with the neck thru design it is probably a higher end bass. Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks. I will try and get a picture to post...
    Peace-
    K.:D

    hmm. don't know about the bas.. but Neck thru does not mean that a bass is a high end bass.. it just means neck thru.

    Generally speaking:
    low-end - entry level, inexpensive (Epiphone, Aria, etc)
    High-end - pro level, expensive (Alembic, Sadowsky, etc)

    That's all that matters - not whether it's "high or low end."

    That comes later.....:D
