Lviv (Lvov) Bass, Ukraine, 70’s


Information about this guitar:

This is an extremaly rare soviet guitar! Finding this guitar in such a shape is like miracle. Guitar was find in a resale shop in a small town in a subcarpatian area in Poland. From the first sight it was sure that its owner was taking care of it. The shop owner just told us that it was brought by a young man whose grandfather was a musician and gave him this guitar. Unfortunately, we were unable to get more information.

Information about the production:

“Lvov experimental factory of folk musical instruments produced semihollow guitar and bass models since the 70’s. The bass had a long scale – 840mm – which was the longest scale among the Soviet basses (Rostov, Maria = 760mm, Bas and Bas2 = 805mm), which is actually the scale that Leo Fender found to be the best for his designs and which became the standard string length ever since.” source
