: : : 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 : Thanks, Sam - I wouldn't sell them if they weren't any good. And any buyer has a seven day approval period. None have ever come back. Good luck in acquiring a bass! thanks, Bob

: Bob you are so right. I have checked out your bass at your site.They look great and the price is good too.
: I would like to try one but I live in California and your basses are on the other side of the country. I know you hold high standards but its kinda risky buying a upright without playing it.
: You have a wonderful web-site.
