New Rubner “Germania” bass


We have a new  German made instrument from the Rubner workshop. This is fully carved, with a spruce top along with maple back and sides. The varnish is red brown with some antiquing. Some dimensions:

  • string length 41 1/4″
  • lower bout width 26 1/2″
  • upper bout width  19 1/2″
  • rib depth lower block 8 1/8″
  • rib depth upper block 7″
  • length of back 44 1/4″

This is a nice instrument – it’s light in weight, projects well and is even across the range. We installed a new East African ebony fingerboard,  fitted a Despiau bridge, New Harmony carbon endpin and Pirastro Evah Pirazzi weich strings.
