There have been a couple of shots of this Classico in the Club, but here are some current photos:

Full Frontal

Headstock

Upper Body; Control Side

There aren't many Classico photos around, so I thought I'd add several.

Awesome, great pics!
I don't want to sound too greedy, but can you take a picture of the serial #?

I've never played an upright, so the learning curve is steep... However, learning something new keeps you fresh.

Thanx!

I was wondering where they put the number on a Classico, play (and learn) in good health!

Simandl is always the best bet in learning positions, scales, arpeggios etc. Welcome to the world of the Double Bass! I can't seem to put mine down, but it's a 3/4 fully carved Sinoman Bass. Wait till you get to the thumb position which traditionally starts at the 12th fret.I'm going to have to start working out on my Distillate because I haven't played it in over a month and I have some electric gigs coming up soon. Good Luck.

Pretty slow. I had to put it aside for some other things, so haven't had the time to get any muscle memory going. Mostly been working with my electrics.

Ah..I understand that! I bought a Digital Piano over 6 yrs ago and this past year I finally got around to really committing to able to play it. Now I am at the point where the Muscle Memory (tactile) is starting to "kick in." It was really frustrating because I had to literally start spelling out-loud, every chord again & that was really frustrating since I don't have to think about spelling chords/arpeggios when playing the basses. Just hang in there! Try learning "Killer Joe" which is a really easy tune & that might "prime the memory muscle pump!!" Happy New Year!!!!
