This is a 5 string bussetto model bass I had made for me by Mr Bryant a few years ago. It has a really lovely brown oil varnish and deep 9 inch ribs. The back is flat. Although I have used it as a 5 string, and loaned it out to other players as such, I am currently using it with four gut strings for playing in period performance ensembles. The bridge, by Laurence Dixon, is notched for both 4 and 5 string use. If you would like to try it, I'd be happy to string it to your preference.

24 Aug 2015 United Kingdom Gofriller model by Paul Bryant No.60 Made in 2005

One of only ten Gofrillers made by Bryant, several of which found their way to America. I've always found the Gofriller to be the most successful of the Bryant basses - but I would say that, wouldn't I? Fortunately here are the words of a dealer 'string emporium' who thinks the same: "The Gofriller, by far is his best model. They sound very dark, deep, are very responsive and quite easy to play on." C extension by Roger Dawson. Excellent condition. Warm, even tone. Hertfordshire.
