Ok, slight impulse buy. Always wanted to learn to play the double bass so started looking around and found a nice looking 50's/60's Czech 4/4 Double bass. Bought today (i won't mention price yet). Have never played in my life and will be looking for lessons soon. Spent tonight just jamming with friends and really enjoyed myself! Feel i picked up a lot quite quickly. Just a bit of rhythm bass. Can anybody confirm this is a Czech Bass from the 50's/60's. Also, what sort of value? Bridge is pretty bent and some new strings would be great. Doesn't seem to be any cracks or damage. Some general wear and tear. Hoping to become quite active here and pick up some tips and technique.
