Sorry to have left this out here but a couple of years after the Bisiach labeled bass was sold, I learned even more about the bass from some bass dealers from Hungary that visited me.

So, I just added this to the Bisiach page in the archives of my DB website.

Special Note: Some time after selling this bass we learned more about its possible origin and make. It is now believed to be a handmade bass from Romania (I have seen one other now) and then purchased by a Hungarian maker and 'Antiqued' to look older than it actually is. The bass is well made and with a beautiful sound, often preferred over older basses with pedigree origins selling for much higher prices. For sound, model and condition, this is a great bass to play and own. Ken Smith
