Here’s some images of my new Nick Lloyd Double bass. It’s a 3/4 walnut flatback model.
The back is highly flamed claro walnut.
Sides also are walnut.
Chromatic C extension.
Notice the hand carving on the scroll, and patina Sloane tuners.
Violin corners and traditional F holes give it a bit of an Italian flavor. I love the quality and color of the finish.
The bass has a focused, projecting tone that is both dark, clear, and rich, and it’s extremely playable with smaller shoulders and a 40.75″ scale. Perfect for jazz and also great arco.
