We have a new Romanian Corsini Elite model. This bass was varnished by someone outside the shop, a professional finisher known in Poland and Romania as “Laci” and it’s very impressive work. The ground prep, glaze and varnish give the instrument a depth and “chatoyance” that is truly deep and beautiful . The wood quality is rare as well with both the top and back being two piece with no “wings” . The blemish free top shows some bear claw figure here and there and the maple back is bookmatched. Highly figured maple used throughout.
The setup includes a new West African ebony fingerboard, Despiau bridge, Ullsperger endpin and Bel Canto strings. While still a 3/4 size bass, the string length is on the short side at 40 5/8″. This would make an ideal instrument for a smaller person, or a player looking to maximize their facility with an instrument that’s a bit easier to get around on.
$8000 with cover.
