Unusual Bass Bars

On this page I'll take photos of some of the unusual bass bars I run across.

This is an inexpensive bass that came in with the lower block and the four lower back seams and the bottom corner blocks unglued. One of the corners was also split and the rib was pulling away from the block. From the outside I fixed the broken rib and glued it back on the coner. I was about to start gluing the seams and I looked inside. The bass bar was 1/2 unglued with a wide gap. Since there wasn't much holding the back on, I removed the back and then glued the bass bar back to the top. This is the first time I glued a bass bar from the back.
