    Now FS today. I have a 1940's Czech made plywood bass. All professionally restored. Brand new plate tuners, bridge, and stand. The stand has a custom turning on the end of it. New Tomastik flat wounds. Plays and sounds great! Includes an extra bridge to set up to your playing style. The current bridge is set up for finger style playing.

    $2700+shipping

    I'm not sure what you mean by big. Send me a pm. I'm thinking a higher end bass.

    can you put a trade value on your upright? I have no idea what such things are worth.
