greetings all, I humbly seek information on this beautiful bass I am about to buy. Here's what I know, I have only seen the same pics I have uploaded here. she believes it was made during the occupation, she says the label says Anton Schuster, "hand made in Germany" and then "American sector". the purfling is painted on. should the board and tailpiece be ebony? or is there a chance that they are " ebonized ". And how can I tell if it has a carved top or plywood? how would I determine it's value? It is undamaged, no cracks or repairs, it's been setup with new bridge and strings. I am meeting her sunday to check it out, any info would help as I have VERY limited knowledge with upright basses.
