As soon as I get Jeff to make a C-Extension for it, I will be using that bass as much as I can for just about everything.

I love your Bollbach bass. Here's one of my favorite lion head scrolls.

Yes, I have seen that and talked to him. He plays in the orchestra in Scandinavia somewhere I think. That is a FULL sized bass they think is English, Cook? the maker. I think it was 116cm string length?

Like the Bollbach, you can see wood added for the cheeks of the Lion as the neck block was not wide enough for the full carving.
