Re-built and modified by Mike Magee, Pittsburgh Pa., completed Fall 2022. New Pictures..

Pictured here is the 1st Bass we commissioned from the pattern of the Marconcini School Bass we have. The sound of this modified copy was better than we had expected but still, we have re-worked this bass internally to meet our standards.
