A personal collection of classic, rare & vintage jazz archtops.



I hunted for a very long while to find a Bass Guitar that sounded just like a real Double Bass.   Something I could play seated, not standing.
Finally, I settled on this  -  it's not the prettiest but the sound is amazing.   Just right for the studio!
This Bass is so jazzy  -  so rich and clear -  you can hear the notes in perfect pitch  (no "thumping" here).
It was my intention to play it upright (so, in my mind I was playing a full size Jazz Bass).   I had planned to modify the body shape and to fit a long adjustable stainless steel peg to get the height right.  I am sure you get the idea.
Unfortunately I am not able to work on guitars now so it just sits in its gig bag in my loft.   That's a shame.
It looks just like new,  a real collectors item,  so I thought I should offer it now.   Maybe it's just what you are looking for.    Standing, sitting or upright, here are the details:   My JAZZ BASS
