I'm sorry, but I don't want a chinese or korean bass, even if they apparently learned lutherie with italian masters, I want an older bass, not a new instrument.
Gougi ????? is that a joke ?? I used to see him when he was in Malakof and he's defenetly not the kind of guy I'd trust ! I saw him destroy some 1/8 basses, fixing them with a sort of superglue !! To be honest, my actual bass comes from his shop. When I bought it after having rented it, he REFUSED to check to see if nothing was wrong with it. So I changed luthier, to find out that the soundpost he had put on there was ridiculous. Maybe he's changed now that he's in Brittany, but he's really not the guy I'd like to by my bass from....
: Hi Ben.
: There are some decently set-up Chinese and Corean new carved basses around here for about 15000-2000FF. You can call François Bonnier in Antony at 01 46 74 00 16.
: For used basses, the best deals are from Fabrice Gougi (website below, click on Atelier de Lutherie, then on Antique Instruments). Give him a call and see if he's got something coming up for 25000FF.
: Bonne chance.
