Arrow Italian Bass by Roberto Muzio, Milan 1993 (SOLD)

Here is a beautiful 3/4 Italian bass from Milan made by Roberto Muzio in 1993. I spoke with Mr. Muzio recently and he remembered this bass. It was played in Italy for a few years and then sold to a dealer in USA thru an Italian dealer. Then it was played professionally here for a few years before it was acquired by me thru a trade deal with another bass. Muzio has made 20 basses to date, the latest one with a carved Lion head.

String Length; 41 5/8"
Top(Spruce)/Back(Flame Maple)Length; 42 7/8" top, 43 1/4" back
Upper Bout; 19"
Middle Bout; 13 1/4"
Lower Bout; 25"
Ribs(Flame Maple); from 8 3/8" at the block tapering to 6 1/8" at neck
