John Juzek Vintage Acoustic Bass, c. 1920

Built in 1920. Beautiful wood, amazing tone.


John (Jan) Juzek (b.1892, d.1965) was born in Písek, Czech Republic and in the early 1900s he operated a violin-making workshop in Schönbach. Juzek was well-known in North America as a merchant and exporter of violins, violas, cellos, and double basses from this workshop. He also sold the work of independent craftsmen of the Bohemia region under his name. Juzek was a luthier in his own right and modeled his instruments on those of the Italian masters. He produced consistently high-quality instruments and was prolific during the early twentieth century.
