Lvov Bass

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.

The bass quality is on the lower end of the Soviet spectrum, which means very bad.Pay attention to the awesome tuners with round wooden heads, this should be a nod to the factory's "folk" profile, such round pegheads are usually seen on Ukranian domras. The plastic bridge on this bass is, of course, non original.
