I'll try to get photos up when I have the chance, but I already know its a German Shop bass, I just want to narrow it down to which one, or which ones it might be. Here's the back story I am trying out this bass for the next week or so and I'm really loving the way it plays and it definitely has a very full tone. The luthier who I may be buying it through said that it was a german shop bass body that had been sitting "in the white" since the sixties. He then got a hold of it, gave it a neck and finish and made it a bass. For the last two years it has been played by a seriously studying student and has matured quite a bit, but it is still only two years old. Here are some distinguishing characteristics that might help: 1. typical wilfer, juzek, etc purfling crest inlaid in the top of the back 2. violin corners (I'm not sure how common these are, but it seems that most shop basses are gamba) 3. has little notches where the break would be if it was a flat back, but it is a round back. I I think of anything more I'll add it, thanks for any help.
