"Jiri Polvony"
1995 4 string 3/4 solid carved bass
offered by

I commissioned this bass in 1995 while traveling in the Czech Republic. Polvony's shop amounts to a castle from my California POV, a stone building with super high ceilings and an entrance you could drive a carriage through. Or so I remember it.

I sold this bass along with several others he made around that time, and have it back now as the owner has passed. It sounds and plays very well and has not yet been broken in any way that I see.

Maple and spruce with Ebony appontments. The body is 25 3/4" x 44", and the string length is 40.5" The neck is neither fat nor thin, being just right IMO.


Thanks for looking!
