The Archtop Acoustic Bass

Built following the shape of a Gibson L5 using  classical elements (violin, cello and contrabass).
The sound board comes with a single brace under the fourth string, while the sound post is installed under the bridge at the level of the first string.
The basic idea is to create a sound as close as possible to that of a contrabass. Look at media to listen to the sound demo.
