Good afternoon TBers!
I am looking to sell my 1953 Benedikt Lang five-string.
It is an incredible 5/8 bass with a lot of tone and volume for its size. It has a Gotz endpin. It is currently set up with a low B.
It will come equipped with a Realist and a standard Mooradian case. It will not come with the bow quiver. You can have one of the damp-its.
I purchased it from David Gage in 2003 for $13,000 for just the bass, before tax. It was appraised at the time for $16,000 and was informally valued more recently (at David Gage) for $18,000.
You can come play the bass in the beautiful Cedar Park neighborhood of Philadelphia, PA.
Feel free to contact with questions and offers. I am open to considering partial trades for high end studio microphones or new single cone National guitars.
