    Nice bass! :)

    Shouldn't this by in the EUB forum though?
     
  3. wow...thats a cool EUB!
    conklin must love you!
    you get all those cool conklins....
     
  4. Love it! Though, that bass clef thingy is kinda backwards. The dots are on the right side but it curls the wrong way. Other than that ... awesome! :D

    Kinda reminds me of this electric Viola da Gamba from Ruby Gamba

    i'm surprised you dont recognize that style of bass clef....

    I would expect a bach lover to :D

    it was actually popular in the late 19 early 20th century american/english music print styles
     
  10. Haha, you're right! I see it in some old Bach manuscripts too. I lose.

    It looks like the bridge has a big enough radius to play arco. Although I think with the string spacing and string guages I would probably opt for a cello bow. What scale is the bass?

    I'd love to hear soundclips.
