    I have a bass and I dont know anything about it other than it may be a Knilling. There are no marking other than a serial number at the base by the endpin. I am looking to upgrade and want to know what I could get for it. Can anyone help?
    This is a link to some pictures of it.

    To my untrained eye, it appears to be a Musima. Also sold under the names of Meisel and Eberle. It is hard to tell from your pictures, but the outside linings appear to be quarter round and are flush with the edge of the top and rear plates. If I am not seeing it correctly, I can only surmise that it is a laminated, German shop bass.

    I can't find much information on Musima. What quality am i looking at? How much would something like this go for?

    These usually sell in the $1200 - $2000 range, depending on your location and condition of the instrument.
