Hello, a freind just purchased an old King Mortone 1/2 Size acoustic bass
and I need some information on it. Its serial number is 3196, from some
sites I've seen that puts it in the 1925-1930 era. It has no soundpost but
the tailpiece and tuning machines are all original. It is plywood and has been
refinished, but the inside label is intact as well as an embossed stamp just
below the lable.
The price was $500, it's in good shape but the neck looks like it's coming
off. Was this a good price? Is the neck thing a common problem with Mortones?
Please email me if you can help!
