Hi all, I've recently become the proud owner of what seems to be something of a rarity. An old regal bassoguitar. I think it's from the 1930's. I traded a lidl plywood bass for it. It's not the most practical thing for gigging and recording, but it sure looks cool on stage between the fiddle and the banjo! I admit, I'm a romantic about such things... Problem is (well, today's problem), I can't find any info about it. The bridge that's on it is from a regular upright, with the feet cut off and the top shaved. I wonder if anybody has any pics or specs or old adverisements, or anything that might get me rolling on making an original-style bridge. The current bridge is warping the front! Any help would be great. p.s. I'll also be looking for a new, more playable upright, preferably fully carved, 3/4 size, near Vermont. As soon as I sell off some other instruments, I'll be looking for an instrument. Any leads would be great. And anybody want to buy a 1960's Puchner bassoon for $6000?
