Rubner Germania bass

We have a new Rubner “Germania 11″ bass with an antiqued blonde finish.  Made with spruce and moderately figured maple, this bass has a very attractive look.  The Rubner workshop in Germany put a lot of careful effort into achieving a proper antiqued appearance – the pictures here don’t do it justice.

Some dimensions:

String length 41″

Lower bout width 26″

Upper bout width 19 1/2″

Rib depth lower block 8 1/8″

Rib depth upper block 6 3/4″

Length of back 44”

These Rubner Germania models are impressive instruments for the money. They have a quick bow response and an even sound with plenty of both high end and low end projection. Set up with a Despiau bridge, Evah Pirazzi weich string set and a New Harmony endpin.

Sold, but see the other Germania.
