: Anybody any history on the RESOLET electric upright bass? I think it must be a sixties model. BJ
Resonet electric uprights were made by Grazioso in Prague, Czechoslovakia from the late 50s to the mid 60s. They look a bit like the Framus Triumph basses; triangular body, magnetic pickup. Far as I know, they were sold as Arco, Grazioso or Futurama Resonet basses. JP Jones of Led Zeppelin occasionally played one, and Eberhard Weber got one in the 70s, which he used for a long time for his explorations into electronics.
