The "Vitruvian Two" model was completed in September 2013 this beautiful instrument was built with players comfort firmly in mind. A brilliant versatile Bass for all styles of playing at a professional standard.
Similarly to "Vitruvian One" this Bass is built on classic Italian lines with a strong influence from the Northern Italian School of making, this Bass features a highly figured carved European Maple back and matching ribs with voluptuous arching on a high grade Swiss Spruce top with mild bear claw figuring.
This "Vitruvian Two" model was built for the first Japan International Contrabass Festival based in Tokyo as a prize for the Solo Double Bass section and previously resided with the deserving competitor Shun Nawa who is studying at the Kyoto City University of the Arts.
