I have a old ply upright bass from the 40's I don't know the make (no label).
I am trying to figure out what size bass it is.
The overall body lenght is 44", upper bout 21", width at center bout is 15", lower bout is 25 1/2 and the string is 43". It's a Gamba shaped bass.
The only thing that seems larger than my 3/4 bass is the string lenght. I have seen 7/8 size basses with the same string lenght as a 3/4 bass. What determines the size?
Thanks in advance for any help on this subject.
