2018 Wilfer #10
We have an Emanuel Wilfer #10 bass at the shop. The top is made from straight grained spruce with the grain width increasing at the sides. The back and sides are made from maple with a mild flame, and the varnish is reddish brown with a dark ground.
- String length right at 41″
- Lower bout width 25 7/8″
- Upper bout width 19 1/4″
- Rib depth at lower block 8″
- Rib depth at upper block 6 7/8″
- length from bottom of bass to top of button 44″
A new Karl Klier fingerboard has been installed by our shop, and the playing setup is optimized for any type of playing. This instrument has a big midrange pizzicato punch for a bass with modest dimensions, and the arco sound projects well. The body size is very manageable with nicely sloped shoulders.
