Help me welcome a distinguished addition to the Encore family of instruments – this achingly beautiful 1974 E.M. Pollmann “Grodner” model bass. This instrument came to us in a remarkable state of preservation and Ben Parrott completed a beautiful setup. No discussion of this bass would be complete without mentioning the jaw-dropping maple used on this instrument. The back, ribs, and neck are all saturated with figure that would make any luthier weep…material like this in this size only exists now in dreams and top-secret private stashes. While this bass is not inexpensive, it represents a tremendous value for anyone who can appreciate its tonal attributes, condition, and physical beauty. Serious inquiries only.
