FINE NEW BASSES
Even closer. The back and sides of this bass is a
quilted maple. Pictures do not do justice to it's depth.
I know that basses sell more quickly if they are artificially
antiqued. It also helps hide shoddy workmanship. Strad made new
instruments. They were bright of color in yellows, reds, and orange.
Many are still like thiswithout the dark look that many associate
with age. I am not trying to liken myself with Strad, I am just
agreeing with that concept. I want to show off my work, so I try
to couple the brightest of colors with a deep, clear varnish.
