Features: This is a beautifully made Viennese/Prague style bass. After researching this bass, the maker Jan Bina and his history as well as seeing several pictures of his basses, we are attributing this bass to him. I have discussed this with other bass dealers in USA and Central Europe as well who also agree on the attribution.
Note: This Bass has been Sold.
