    I must part with my back up bass. I have owned it for over ten years and it plays great. It is a great instrument. There are no cracks but some small cosmetic damages in the finish. Photos are available here: http://mandocello.org/modify/public_html/dbforsale/

    I have just added a video of me playing this bass which is available here:

    I am located in Virginia but am willing to drive a ways or ship (at buyers expense) to make a sale. Don't hesitate to ask any questions. Thanks,
    Chris Dammann

    This bass was mail order from a Vienna strings add maybe 15 years ago. I am the only owner. I believe it is a d neck. I am not sure what factory this bass is from since I have no idea who was supplying Vienna strings there instruments at that time. Pm for my phone number. I am happy to make some audio samples, more pictures etc on request.

    I am willing to entertain offers. I don't think its possible to get a better sounding instrument for the price I am asking for this bass.

    The bass was probably made by the San Jin/Linear company, which at that time was probably supplying Lemur with some of their instruments (I had quite a bit to do with the Koreans at one time and there are threads on it in the Bass forum. If the bass has lasted this long without splitting or cracking then it is an excellent value for money purchace.

    LouisF,

    I hate to sell it. It plays and sounds better than one would think for the price I paid for it but c'est la vie.

    This bass sounds to good not to be played by someone.

    I have had very good experiences moving my son's bass using UShip.com
