Harvey the 1939 American Standard Bass

A few months ago when visiting with Alan Bartram of the Del McCoury band he mentioned that Jerry McCoury (Del’s youngest brother) love his (Alan’s) 1939 American Standard Bass.  Jerry played the bass at the IBMA showcase in Nashville for “The Masters of Bluegrass”.  

The MOB has just completed their first show of the season and low and behold Jerry is center stage playing Alan’s American Standard bass.  

 I guess he really does love the bass!  And watch him pull those strings...WOW!

It gives us a warm fuzzy feeling to know Harvey was resurrected at our workshop.  It is flat out awesome to know this bass is back in circulation and making joyful music with some of the greatest living legends alive today in bluegrass.
