Excellent quality, very well made Viol shape Double Bass by German builder Michael Glass.

3/4 Adorf Vogtland model.

Owned from new in 1996.

Very even sound with a present and punchy low end - well suited for any touring Jazz or Orchestral player. Full swell back. Excellent condition throughout with only a couple of very small marks. Has never been gigged or toured. Only ever used as a practice instrument and the occasional recoding.

The Michael Glass logo is located below the back button. Have put Gewa in listing as they are now distributors for Michael Glass, but as this is a 1996 model, this is a hand made Double Bass from the Glass workshop.

Sold with soft case and a generic bow in box.

Width across upper bouts - 54.5cm (21.48in)
