In Reply to: bass with cut-away posted by Nacho Hernandez on September 21, 2001 at 09:44:31:
: Sometime ago, I have seen an upright bass with a cut away above, like an electric or an acoustic bass. I think that this can make easier to play upper tones and avoid thumb positions. Can anyone give me information about what kind of bass is that?.
: Thanks in advance.
The German company Framus made these basses, I believe in the 50's or 60's. Most were plywood, but I believe some were carved, as this pic appears to be. I don't think they were anything great sound wise, but I've never heard one.
