    Hi!

    I'm currently selling my old German bass. The instrument has a lot of character and is a great all around bass. It is an ideal instrument for a very serious student or anyone who wishes to bring their playing to the next level. It has present sound and projects very well. For orchestral work the bass also has a nice punch to it. It is not a huge instrument so it is easy to get around but it does have a big sound. I have had the instrument for 6 years and it has helped me get into many summer music festivals and into Boston University (where I am studying now). I have played quite a bit of jazz on the instrument as well and it has proved to be and excellent jazz bass.

    Over the course of those 6 years I have had no new cracks or chips. I had a small open seam once (quick and easy fix) but that mostly came from moving to a drastically different climate for school. Long story short, its a durable instrument and has been taken care of very well. In the time that I owned it I had a new ebony fingerboard installed, added some wood to the bridge, put new bridge adjusters on, put a new tailpiece wire on, and installed a new sound post.

    The top is Spruce and the back and ribs are Maple.
    Dimensions:
    Body Length - 42"
    Upper Bout Width - 19.5"
    Lower Bout Width - 25"
    Rib Depth - 8"
    String Length - 41"

    Asking Price: $10k

    Located in Boston, MA until May and then Dallas, TX for the summer. If you are interested please contact me and you can come try out the instrument.
