    I don't think any of them are much over 5' tall! (The girls, I mean)

    Both those Basses are 19th century French. I have the second pic in one of my books.. In 1982 I was in Spain. A small group was just finishing playing in the Street. The Bass Player (in his 50s-60s) was playing a 3-string Bass. He told me it was a Spanish Bass, made in Spain. Spain had had a few good makers in the last few hundred years as well as the rest of Europe. It looked to be within about 100 years old.

    Not a Babe Post, Just a 3-string story.. Sorry fellas...

    Forget about the girls, read some of the text (no you don't have to know spanish). One of the guys there posted a supposed letter from Gary Karr stating that he's selling all of his basses including his "Amati".

    Gary Karr doesn't have an Amati !! It is a German Bass and all the Bass experts know it !!! Sorry to burst all those bubbles out there..

    Thus the quotations. Besides the fact that it's not an Amati, I have also heard that the only original piece of wood on that bass - albeit the most important - is the top anyway.

    Never mind all that stuff, scroll down to the little penguin shot. I had to take off the window to stop laughing(especially after a couple of boilermakers).

    That was great! I love the little back slap the other penguin does to help things along. Classic.

    I see they have a Jazz forum, because :
