March 29, 2020

A fully carved roundback bass from Gewa’s German workshop. This one has some nice wood figure with plenty of Bearclaw in the top and nice flame in the back. Very nice reddish golden brown varnish with antiquing. Some dimensions:

string length 41 3/8″

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″

Nice punchy midrange pizz. sound for jazz,  and easy to get around the sloping shoulders.
