    Here is a picture of a Yankee bass top. No makers label. Top bouts 24 inches, bottom bouts 34 inches. This is a full size bass and will most likely take me several years to complete.

    I'm speechless, I'll have to quote Queen on this one:

    "Big bottomed girls, you make the rocking wolrd go round!"

    Is that all that's left of the bass?

    Well Ray, thank you for asking.
    That is all that is left of the top. The upper right bout will have to be re-created. The rest of the bass is in pieces. It is a flat back and the ribs are set into a channel that outlines the back. There is no neck to this bass, but the Prescott scroll I have might be a possibility. Yankee bass + Yankee scroll. How much closer can one get?
