A well made, well proportioned English bass by George Warburton bearing his full label George Warburton, Maker 1880, Manchester and similarly signed in ink on the upper inside back. Little is recorded of this maker, however it is evident from the form and quality of the workmanship that Warburton was a professional maker and close follower of the "Master" English bass makers - namely Lott, Fendt and Kennedy. This classic English instrument could easily be mistaken for being made by a more recognised maker and indeed it is possible that a young Warburton was apprenticed to Fendt. 

A violin shaped instrument with flat back and angle, good playable dimensions and nicely made with good materials and topped by a scroll of good execution.

Fitted with a new fingerboard and quality Barnaby extension this is an extremely useful professional quality instrument. Very easy to play and possessing a very deep dark sound. 

LOB 44.65in (113.3cm)
