Romanian Panormo Elite

February 21, 2014

We have a new roundback Panormo Elite bass from the Calin Wultur workshop.  Some dimensions:

String length 41 1/4″

Lower bout width 27″

upper bout width 20 1/2″

Rib depth at lower block 8 5/8″

Rib depth at upper block 6 5/8″

Distance from bottom of bass to top of button 45 1/2″

The shop used some nice flamed maple in the back, sides and neck. And the spruce top has nice clear grain, narrow in the middle and widening at the sides.  The neck was pretty big so we trimmed the neck in width and thickness , blended things in and revarnished  the neck.  Set up with a thick East African fingerboard, Despiau bridge and Ullsberger Massiv endpin.  Nice sounding bass with an even sound.

$7500 with cover.
