Eastman Model VB95 Antiqued Upright Double Bass Carved Top Hand Rubbed Varnish
Great quality woods, Excellent Workmanship.
You can't go wrong with this carved top upright bass, Eastman has a reputation for high quality instruments for the money. The VB95 is a definite winner for being an outstanding bass for its price range. For $2625 you get a 1st grade brand new bass professionally set up with adjustable bridge and great strings, ready to stand bridge and boogie!
A low jazz setup takes many more hours of working on the fingerboard and bridge and is $175 more than setups for other styles of play. This can be selected in the options for setups. No charge for my doing any other style of setups, included in the Sale Price with free shipping too.
Busetto Shape is shown in the first closeup picture, the rounded lower corners of the waist is the busetto shape. Gamba Shape is shown in the picture with both sides of the bass well photographed by Eastman.
The Andreas Eastman instruments were catapulted to international prominence when an independent review panel, writing in STRINGS magazine, selected the model 305 violin as its “definitive favorite.” The basses are made by the same craftspeople and this antique varnished carved top bass, laminate sides and back is a big sounding winner for sure.
