    At first glance it looks like a typical Bohemian (Czech) bass from about 1900 or so. It would help to see pics of the ribs and scroll, and also the tuners, if original. Looks like a nice bass--those usually sound very good.

    Thanx arnoldschnitzer, the bass sounds great, has a few dings,, good shape considering it's age, and a lot of roadwork it's done, it came from an elderly gentlemen that I play bluegrass with,,he said it's seen alot,, was just courious what it might be and the value of it,,my son is starting to play it,,he's 12,,and a heck of rythym man,, have other pics of it also,,
