Antique 3/4 double bass: Tyrolean and 'blockless wonders' old basses that were made without a neck block and emanate from the Tyrol, Germany and Bohemia.
I want to sell this beautiful Tyrol/Bohemian 3/4 double bass, which is about 200 years old.
Made in the region of Europe. Nice brown-yellow varnish. Recently restored and in top condition October 6 2020.
Many instruments of this type and quality have had a particularly difficult life.
The original body of the double bass 4/4 the was once deliberately modified to 3/4. In my opinion for solo play, jazz and improvised music.
This a very solid double bass and ready for playing. Visual and audio reference visit.
Body length 105 cm
Rib depth 17 cm
Upper bouts 53 cm
Center bouts 40 cm
Lower bouts 65 cm
String length 103 cm

I'm selling this David Gage Realist Copperhead pickup. This is the pro standard pickup for double bass, very feedback resistant and good round sound. This one has been mounted on my spare bass so has had very little use.
Looking for £120 posted and insured in the UK.
Or pickup from Chessington, KT9.
Any questions, give me a shout.
