2019 Rubner “Walther” bass

April 27, 2021

We have a another fully carved roundback bass from the Rubner workshop. This has the antiqued golden brown “Berlin” finish and looks great with some nice flame in the back and sides. Some dimensions:

lower bout width 26 1/4″

upper bout width 19 1/4″

rib depth at lower block 7 15/16″

rib depth at upper block 7″

length of back 44 1/2″

string length 41 1/4″

This one is particular good  with a punchy pizz. sound and nice projection with the bow. This one is very light in weight as well, and the neck profile has a nice feel. The bass arrived with a saddle crack in top, but that has been well repaired by our shop.  Set up with New Harmony carbon endpin, Teller bridge and Pirastro Evah Pirazzi weich strings.

 

$6500 with cover.
