Old East German Plywood Double Bass

For an all Plywood instrument, this East German bass is a rare find. It's full, rounded sound and ability to project makes it a treat to play. The slim "C-shape" neck and even string spacing, as well as a medium string height make it comfortable without loosing any volume or briliance in tone.  This instrument features a slightly carved back and gamba corners. Currently set up with Innovation Rock-A-Billy tape wound strings and is great for the Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, Bluegrass, Jazz and Contemporary players out there.
