I bought this bass from David Gage at the ISB convention and it can be seen on his webpage. http://www.davidgage.com/showroom_basses.php see # 2524 Very big, focused and even sound from this fine vintage German bass. I love this bass however the 42" string length has proven to be just a little too big for my hands. I understand Edgar Meyer has one of these basses.I can see why. This bass is in excellent condition. It has a brand new set of Thomastic Weichs and comes with a bag, David Gage pneumatic shock wheel and Realist pup. Asking David Gage's appraised value of $10,000.
