    Yes, I also have a 3/4 Victor Pawlovski Double bass, violin model. But I bought it a bit earlyer than 1985, I do think it was 1981. I bought from Henk Suiker, a musicstore in the centre of The Hague in the Netherlands. I still have the bass, but my bass is also customized. It has a new (adjustable) bridge and the neck is flattened. Right now it has a very low action. The bass is customized by Rogier Dieges in Rotterdam. He told me that Victor Pawlovski doesn't exist. The basses are specially made in order of Henk Suiker in formal Eastern Germany. But it is realy a very nice bass, beautifull wood and a good sound!
  5. Took my Pawlowski to my luthier (Pot en van Dalen, Breda, the Netherlands) for en new bridge. He instantly recognized it as a Pawlowski.
    He told me that Viktor Pawlowski basses where the better east german shop basses. Most east german shop basses where branded Musima but some better bass builders where making basses under their own name.
    I have a 4/4 and he estimated it between 2500 and 3000 Euro.

    No bass without a picture:
