Restoration of poor condition German bass

This old German bass came to us in a very poor state, there were several unsupported open cracks on the front as well as the ribs. The fingerboard was extremely thin and the over stand was much too small, this makes for a bass with a very low bridge height and increased tension over the table. There was also a weak spot running the length of the bass bar so we fully supported it with cleats under the bass bar to make sure it was strong. We replaced the fingerboard with a much heavier one to increase the over stand of the bass, we also re graduated the neck so that it was comfortable.
