A gentleman that I know saw me playing in a group, and said he had a bass he wanted me to have. In his attic quite some time it developed some cracks in the carved top, so I have removed the top to get started, and when checking the bassbar for looseness, I noticed it also was carved from the blanks when the top was carved. Seems to me that would be a good method compared to a separate bar glued to the top. This bass only has Germany stamped inside, and looks like a student quality. It has a flat back & no purfling or ebony. The machine heads have the wood peg. I believe it to be around 60 years old!
I just thought someone might get a bang out of the bassbar, or maybe someone knows a reason for a "glued in" bassbar having benefit.
