Went today to have a look at a mystery bass someone told me about, possibly available very cheaply. The bass is a 3/4 chinese "Blessing" carved instrument, no idea of its age (c30 years probably?) and apparently nothing special, a few dings. Cruddy Ebonised maple neck and tailpiece, yuk strings and a crack splintering on the belly under the treble foot near the soundpost ... this latter is a worry, but not the end of the world ... but otherwise quite sound. I have a feeling the instrument could be made to work quite well with a bit of care. A potential project bass. But the strangest thing was the bridge. This thing was made of steel, with three - yes three - feet in a sort of tripod arrangement, each threaded alloy foot adjustable with a screwdriver from the top. I think the brand on the bridge was selmer? should have taken more notice. Has anyone come across either the Blessing brand, or more importantly, this freaky bridge? Sorry, i don't have any photos.
