    In case you are interested Olivo has begun making basses again for the first time in 35 years. He has just been doing acoustic instruments....classical guitars, violins, etc for a very long time, like his father.....He sent me a 4 and a 5 to see if there is any interest in English North American market....Im thinking about getting Olivo owners together for a first test party....likely Hamilton or Niagara region....not sure how many will be made yet but these two new ones are 9 lbs with a passive EMG P pickup....might have the potential for a part time gig for me if there is enough interest. Can I post a pic?

    Never heard a word so am I right in assuming no interest in this man's remarkable work? It has taken some time for me to set up an online vehicle to purchase an Olivo but it can be done now. I dont wish to violate TB policy but until recently I have only ever sold my own instruments on here.....this one is still being built but it solicited an "Oh my" when I received this pic...

    Stunning! I worked at a music store in Montreal in the late 70's We had Olivos and Odyseys.. loved them both , bought a lower end Odyssey; still have it. Good to see he's still around and creating. Hawk-B400.

  5. Which store was it? I rented an Olivo from a Montreal store back in the 80s (can’t remember the name though).
