Yet another restoration thread. Picked up a Vito contrabass for a -ridiculously- low price and it turned out to be in excellent condition for it's price, pads are beautiful, springs all good, one little crack in the upper body and a broken tenon in the middle, but it's nothing to scrap. One bent key, a few missing screws, time to head to the parts drawer. I'll probably be posting follow ups on the progress of getting this beauty in to playing condition. I've never ever ever worked on a plastic instrument of this size before, but it's going to be worth it! Stay tuned for pictures within the next few weeks, too. Been a hectic year so far and haven't had any internet time, but I'm glad I got a chance to get online and meet my new friend Contrabass.
