Cool Marconcini model, 2013/2017 (SOLD)

This is the 2nd modified copy of the Marconcini school bass in our collection. The dimensions are slightly larger than the first copy but as with both, they have Violin corners.

This is a great all around Bass as it works equally well for Orchestra, Solo or Pizz playing with or without amplifier. The Bass is fairly loud, projecting and tonally dark as it does not sound like a new bass. This bass was opened up recently after settled in for a few years and the Top graduations were slightly tweaked as well as adding a C-Extension to cover all 'bases' of professional use.

String Length; 41 3/4" (106cm)
Top/Back Length; 44 3/4" top/back, 46" to back button
Upper Bout; 19 1/4"
Middle Bout; 14 1/4"
Lower Bout; 25 1/2"
Ribs; 8 1/4" tapering to 6 1/2" at Neck
