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.
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.
