: Looking for a full or 3/4 upright with at least two bullet holes in it,more the better. Must be well used to fit in with our bluegrass show.
: Playable, but cheap.
: Any responce appreciated
A useless bit of info for you ! ( but on the same lines ) - the bass with the bullet holes that was in "Some Like It Hot" ( Marilyn Monroe , Tony Curtis & Jack Lemmon ) was last seen to my knowledge ( and this is the REALLY weird bit ) being backpacked around the Amazon !!!!
All of this really is true - I still have the newspaper article to prove it. It seems that the person doing this ( I think he was a professor of music ) thought the Amazonian Indians might like to hear the classics ! What his reasoning behind this was Ican't remember but it would be nice to know what happened to that bass afterwards that is if it survived
By the way the bass was a 5/8 size and the holes were put in by an M.G.M carpenter.
If anyone knows anymore of the story can they let me know.
