John Juzek (signed label inside)
5th string was added after the bass was made
- length - 115 cm (45.3")
- upper bout - 53 cm (20.9")
- center bout - 37 cm (14.6")
- lower bout - 70.5 cm (27.8")
Reading from its October 2012 appraisal:
The top is two-piece spruce with straight, even, medium-to-wide grain. A large repair wing piece was added to the lower treble bout. The back is a 2-piece plain quarter-cut maple. The scroll is beech, V grafted to a maple neck, and a reverse wedge has been added to the neck face. The instrument is in fair condition.
It possesses that unusual combination of beauty (of tone) and beast (in volume).
The tone is remarkable across all registers - with lyrical highs, muscular mids and that authoritative, church organ-like low end.
Included are some practical accessories:
-three decent German bows; a quiver; a box for one bow
-Gage Realist and Underwood pickups, installed
-a nifty blender to combine and edit your amplified sound (should you require an amp...)
