    Hello everyone!

    Sorry if this topic has been covered already, but I didn't find anything too specific in the archives. I'm considering picking up my first double bass.. a local shop (violins, etc.) pointed me to Christopher basses, but I'm looking at my options.

    Is there an opinion on these boards about the new Juzek basses? I found this online:

    $1700 is a great price, so anyone with experience please let me know what you think of this bass!

    Also, how difficult would it be to find an old, pre-war (prague) juzek? ... with a decent price tag?

    Thanks much!
  2. I don't know much about Juzeks in general, but the specific bass you're interested in is available in 1/2 size only, according to the website.

    Yikes, why didn't I notice that? Probably because it was 2 in the morning!

    The hunt continues..
