Hello Bassfriends !

The other day I was viewing two very old basses, the first was likely from 1750 and the other of unknown date of production.
Both of them had an "extra shoulder
on the shoulders" ( I have tryed to show it in the scan).

Does this style of shape tell us something about itīs age? Was this common on very old basses ?

When viewing a few basses on the Internet that were very old I did notice
some were very dark in colour.
Was this common or are they just so cracked they actually had to be "toned down" because all the cracks would have been to visible ?

Do you know about any site with many scans of basses ?

Thanks in advance for your reply !
(Sorry about my poor english !)

Kind regards,
