Made in 2012 Number 11

This is an AV Viol model bass. It is an outline taken from a Wolf Brothers bass, the original of which can be seen in the gallery. It is a petite ¾ size instrument with a 40 ¾" or 103.5cm vibrating string length.
I decided to make a bass to this outline as the original worked particularly well as a smaller instrument. The same is true of this bass, the "E" and "A" strings are very full sounding considering the size of the instrument.

It is made from Maple for the Back, ribs and neck, and spruce for the front. It has an Ebony fingerboard and handmade machine heads.

There is some interest in this instrument, and so it is not offered for sale at this time.
