Default dimensions

according to:
https://www.gollihurmusic.com/faq/2-...IZING_FAQ.html

I would actually label it as a 1/2 size with a short 3/4 string length (102cm)....I think it'd be a good size and string length for solo playing, eh?

dimensions are:

Full Height:67 inch
Body Height:40 in
Upper Bout Width: 17.5 in
Lower Bout Width: 23 in
Scroll to Shoulder: 28.5 in
Width at Nut: 1.6 in
Ribs: 8.5 in

Old basses dont have sizes but not sure of this one age. Looks more like a home made project. Odd looking but not bad.

Default thanks!

hi Ken, that was fast!

ok, so an oddball, not likely to be a shop bass?

any ideas for approximate place and time of build?

it sure has small dimensions, sounds terrific though

thanks again!
