I am selling my Christopher double bass. It is 3/4 size, laminated, and has interesting "Busetto" corners. This bass is equally excellent pizz or arco, with a clear and punchy low end. I have used it myself for many years in both classical and jazz gigs, as it projects well without amplification but responds well to a pickup.
I wish I could hold onto it for future use, but I need the money to fund my expensive audition addiction.
This cost nearly $2,000 in 2002, and I've seen them going for even more than that nowadays. However, all I'm asking for is $999. I don't math much, but that's not a bad deal. Includes a canvas-like soft cover!

Well, if you wanted even more savings... I'm willing to sell the bass and bow as a bundle: $1,500 for the bass and bow. That's basically $1,200 savings. Maybe we can even haggle a little bit.
Do not hesitate to contact me: nmbrowne (at) gmail (.) (com) or PM me here if you prefer.
NOTE: This bass has a small blemish where a repair was done on the neck almost ten years ago, has not ever been a problem. CLOSEUPS: http://imgur.com/a/23mXt
