Features: Pictured here is the first of 3 Basses we commissioned from the pattern of the Marconcini School Bass we have. The sound of this first modified copy was better than we had expected but still, we are re-working the bass internally to meet our standards. Then we had 2 more Basses made with slightly larger dimensions for a slightly larger Orchestra size Bass.

Note: In Stock is one of the Larger models (7/8) that was just recently re-worked internally by one of our Luthiers and also added an Ebony C-Extension for professional use. The dimensions vary slightly from Bass to Bass as they are fully hand made.
