I have here 1999-2000 made 3/4 size Double Bass
Originally the body was handmade in Europe and then imported by Lemur Music in California. Rick Reynolds (Vancouver based Luthier) got his hands on a few bodies and brought them to his shop in Vancouver to finish them, fingerboard, bridge, tailpiece and tuning hardware were all added and proper string length dialed in. I then bought this bass basically brand new from Rick and played it professionally for about 6 years now.
The bass is classically French with narrow shoulders, very even across the string set with no buzzing or rattling on any string. Top, back and sides are carved, top and back are two piece each and have beautiful wood grain. Top is spruce, back and sides are maple. One piece high grade ebony fingerboard and 2 tree bridge. Strings are D'darrio, can't remember the model but the ones Mcbride endorses. Pickup is a Fishman Full Circle, never had any issues with this. Comes with a full softcase and basic German bow.
Anyone interested is welcome to ask questions and play it to get a feel for it.
Only selling as I am moving on to a different bass but have played this happily in many different settings for years now, mostly jazz oriented.
