Nicolas François Vuillaume Bass
Timeless elegance and true gem this 7/8 Nicolas François Vuillaume Bass circa 1840. Features a two-piece medium vertical grained spruce, with the back made of complimentary particle slab cut maple and is stamped #186 below the neck block button. The ribs are of matching character maple to the back table, with the original neck and scroll of plain grain maple. The instrument has french brass tuning gears set up with a Kolstein extension. The color is a lovely patina amber brown with reddish hues, an incredible sounding bass that's in great condition. Bass still retains its original label
