Traded for this bass via TB late last year. Another bass has been offered to me, so I'm looking to sell this one. Before my purchase of it, its broken neck was repaired with a bolt, and its two long cracks on the top were cleated and glued. During shipping, the glued repair around the heel of the neck separated slightly - about the width of a business card. The bass is playable, and the bolt is holding; the narrow space in the neck repair just wants clamping and re-gluing. You're still getting aged wood and old-school craftsmanship - with the warmth and depth you hear on classic recordings. Label inside reads: "Copy of Antonio Stradivarius Made in Czecho Slovakia" Fully carved - genuine spruce top, maple sides and back (no plywood, no laminate) New features: new ebony fingerboard, new sound post, new end pin, adjustable bridge. Dimensions: - Upper bout 20 1/8" - C bout 14 7/8" - Rib depth 8 1/2" - Body length 43 1/2" - String length 41 1/2" - Eb neck This bass is punchy - and LOUD! Good growl for jazz pizz on the low end, and cello-like clarity with the bow. Currently strung with very fresh Spirocore Orchestra gauge (red silk ends) Original tuners, scroll, neck and body. The back is practically perfect. Accessories: - a spare bridge - wheel (which will need a bigger shaft to fit the new, wider end pin) - German bow (student level) - rock stop to hold the point of the end pin on slippery floors or protect good carpets - UNDERWOOD pick-up - some jazz players' favorite - a $200 value Asking $2500 if you pick it up in Los Angeles, or $3,000 if you want it shipped to a US destination.
