Hello, I'm one of the newbies here. I've been taking lessons for about 2 months, using a rental instrument. I just recently bought a 1935 HN White King bass project for restoration from a seller on Ebay. I did whatever research I could to verify its authenticity, and it seems like the real deal. However, I could still have been fooled. I will post pics soon, and would appreciate opinions from other members, including luthiers, as to the potential for this bass. Fortunately, it did not cost me the earth, so even if it is a dud, I'm OK.
