old Czech roundback Bass with Strad Label

Discussion in 'For Sale: Double Basses' started by Morellibass, Aug 9, 2012.


  1. I have a vintage Czech roundback bass with violin corners. I'd say made in the 1920-30's. It's a roundback with violin corners and fancy purfling on back under the button. Bass has new Spiro Core strings, a new adjustable Aubert Luxe bridge, and a new fingerboard two inches longer than normal. Email for pictures, bass has strings on it now. There is a soundpost crack on top that was glued and cleated when I got the bass, buyer might need to have a soundpost patch put in at some time, also there has been an expertly done heel repair by luthier Sal Giardina. I'm pricing it at $6500 firm. Bass reminds me of an old Andreas Morelli or Juzek. call Jim outside New Orleans at 504-559-2384 if interested.

    Great looking bass.
     
  3. Thanks, I like this bass. I've seen similar basses for 10-12K. I'm allowing for taking the top off and putting a soundpost patch and while it's off a new bassbar. Sal said he would do this work for $1000. May not even need to be done. Top looks healthy and bass sounds good. Jim
