Here are the photos I took with my camera phone 5 mins after it arrived. Sadly, I've not had much time to play. 100% Hollow and Its very loud acoustically, as loud as any acoustic bass I"ve played....very pleased! Can't wait to get my nylon black flats! This was a bargain at $699 IMO.... Money well spent for what I forsee will be a collector's piece. This is every bit as good as my German Hofners. I'll take detailed pics next week.
