I suspect that due to the coronovirus crisis there is little prospect of selling an instrument of this quality for the time being. However, for those avidly browsing the forum, I would be interested in a part-ex for a quality jazz guitar ( Gibson ES 175 - Ibanez George Benson or similar). If you have such a thing and are looking for a class double bass, please get in contact.

Stay safe.

Hi Steve,

I'd like to see and try this bass but it's a 5 hour journey from Surrey and current restrictions forbid an overnight stay.  I may work out something, otherwise I will have to wait until restrictions are lifted, although I'm looking at more local stuff so may find something in the meantime.  I'll get back to you in due course if I'm still looking.

Thanks for your interest. Difficult time to travel and buy a bass. Cheers!

I keep coming back to this for a look. Stunning looking bass! When you say “attributed to an unknown early 21st Century maker” does that mean you know the maker’s name but he is not well known or you don’t know who made the bass? If the latter how do you know it was made in Hungary? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

The story from the chap I bought it from was that it was made as part of a batch in Hungary for a well known and expensive shop in the South of EnglandIt was finished and setup by a UK luthier but then bought by the previous owner before it made it into the aforesaid shop. It's a quality piece of kit.

 

Steve
