: Hello Bassfriends !
The socalled double shoulder is a design element of some tyrolian basses were the uper ribs are set into the heel of the neck . no extra upper block on these basses. volker
: 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 !
