New Gewa Walther 5/8 bass


A nice new bass from the German Rubner workshop made with European Spruce and mildly flamed maple. The finish is red spirit varnish with some antiquing.

Some dimensions:

  • string length 40 1/2″
  • upper bout width 19 3/8″
  • lower bout width 26 1/4″
  • rib depth tapers from 7 3/8″ to 6 5/8″
  • length of back 42 5/8″

The size of this instrument would appeal not only to players looking for an instrument a bit smaller than a typical 3/4, but might also work as a solo bass or “pit bass”. The projection is impressive for a smaller bass, and the arco response is quick. Smaller neck profile

Set up with a new Karl Klier fingerboard, adjustable Aubert bridge and Pirastro Passione strings.
