    Hello everyone!

    Would you please help me learn about my string bass? Can you help me identify the maker, and would you please tell me anything else about it?

    It's 3/4 sized, carved top, laminate sides and back. I think the bass is pretty old, and though it's been used quite a bit, I think it sat in a local music shop for years until the shop closed and the previous owner bought it. I don't see any maker's label anywhere, and the only label I see is one that reads 'Paul Safran And Son'.

    Thank you for any info you can provide!

    -Martin.

    Thank you, Tejano Bass. If I'm correctly reading the thread you reference, we really don't know who the maker is, correct? We know that importers like Juzek and Safran didn't build these instruments themselves -- they simply stuck their labels on them, and anything beyond that is pure conjecture?
