Josef Rubner, ca. 1900


Josef Rubner 3/4 size bass, made ca. 1900 in Markneukirchen, Germany. Fully-carved with spruce top, maple ribs and maple round back. Top-off restoration by BVS in 2018, including new bass bar, soundpost patch, minor edge replacement, new soundpost, new adjustable bridge, new fingerboard, new Gotz endpin, and cosmetic touch-up. This bass is a cannon and would be an excellent jazz or orchestral instrument!

String length: 42 1/2″
