This consignment 1995 Jaroslav Lavicka 3/4 fatback orchestral bass was built by the czech master luthier at his shop in Luby. Designed for a large orchestral voice, this instrument was previously used by the late owner in jazz settings and in the symphony before that. It has developed a large and even presence through consistent play and it has been well cared for. The top is of even medium grain spruce with bold winter grain lines. The mildly flame figured maple back, sides, and neck is of moderate density and has a musically penetrating tap tone. The machines are individual plates with chrome plating. Ebony fittings all the way around. Well chosen maple bridge with no adjusters added. The orange brown oil varnish is lightly applied. Currently strung with Evah Pirazzi orchestral gauge strings. Dimensions are: Top length 42 5/8″, Upper bout width 20 1/2″, Middle bout width 13 3/8″, Lower bout width 26 1/2″, Depth at neck 7 1/2″, Depth at upper bout corner 8 5/8″, Depth at tail 8 7/8″, String length 41 3/4″. This bass has a powerful arco presence through all ranges, a testament to the talents of the builder and of the time spent playing by the former owner. With cover.

Price: $13,500
