    Mr. Caio Caravelli (brazilian luthier) is my friend, and is building a new EUB for me. His work is amazing! If you need some information about or contact Mr. Caravelli, I can help you (since caio don't speck english). He has a lot os instruments exported to europe. I have prdered a EUB and a electric bass (to be delivered in 120 days).

    The Caio's EUB if fully handmade, hand-carved in mahogany.

    I work in an international branch of Banco do Brasil (brazilian government bank) doin only export/import operations, and considering that Mr. Caravelli is our customer, i can help you about to buy any instrument in brazil.

    Can you help me about a pickup for a bass (the Caio's EUB uses a double bass bridge, the instrument is all specs of a double bass, but have a small body)
