So I got a pretty big amount of money back from my taxes and decided to invest in a decent double bass. After trying out a few instruments I knew what I was looking for and found it in this Dutch built, all solid 3/4 bass, built by luthier Léon Christiaens in 1991. Feels great, adjustable bridge, in an amazing condition...lovely. Absolutely lovely.

Lens distortion?  Or maybe tuning compensation, like a guitar!  90o to the strings and aligned with the little Vs in the f- holes, is more traditional 😉
