: HI does anyone play or tried a Korean carved bass? Lemur in California
: sells a nice flamed back and sides korean bass that I am thinking of buying.
: I know you are going to tell me that the wood is green. but do you know that for sure?
: I was told that all new carved bass from Europe in the
: $2000. are green. I really don't how they can know this.
: I work with wood. thought not tone woods. but I can tell you that most
: woods are dry after 1 year. then after that its just aging thing. wood just does not keep on drying it reaches a point then its a aging thing.

I think it is foolish for anyone to generalize about an entire country's (or continent's!!!) output of instruments. Just because aged wood is used doesn't mean it is GOOD aged wood, either . Buy a bass from someone who guarantees satisfaction and with whom you feel comfortable.
