Joseph Bohmann 1915 (Chicago)


This instrument is one of the 20th century’s most unique instruments.  This is the famous instrument played by legendary bassist Paul Warburton with jazz greats such as Stan Getz, Pharaoh Sanders, Richie Cole and Clifford Jordan.  The sound is amazing as you can well imagine!  The instrument plays easy, smooth and is completely satisfying.

We have updated the setup with a new fingerboard and bridge.  The bass is in excellent condition.

We are looking for a player that can be part of the legacy of this amazing instrument.  A caretaker that can enjoy and pass this instrument on to future generations.
