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. I had a Gotz endpin installed. It is currently set up with a low B. Here are the measurements: Scale length - 40" Upper bout (widest) - 19 1/4" Waist (narrowest) - 14 1/2" Lower bout (widest) - 26" Body length (not including heel or endpin)- 41" Bass height (not including endpin) - 79" Rib Depth - 8 5/8" 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.
