    At about 130 gms this is an articulate easy playing bow which i have had for quite a few years from new, possibly about 15 years, just a guess as i have long since lost any records of purchase. It could use a clean up and possibly a rehair (last done about 2 years ago by Jim Ellender top Sydney archetier).
    Its a great bow for advanced player whether student or pro. Plenty of pro players use these bows.
    Nothing wrong with it, just used a lot! But I have several bows and don't specialise in arco, so its surplus to my needs. I'm asking $900 USD including postage anywhere (posting from Australia). Not sure what they retail for but here in Australia they are listed at $2,800 AUD ..... If you are interested get in touch please :)
    Paypal is fine. More photos if you wish......
    just send me PM

    More photos by request. Let me know if you have any interest. Otherwise the bow goes to eBay! Not many of these renowned bows come up so take a chance if you can......

    For some time now I have found that these are the best bows for under $2000 US. I found a French bow here on TB for $1000 US recently and a student also bought a German bow a few years back advertised here for $900 US.

    Thanks to the owners of TB for making this possible.

    Just a bump for this great bow.
    Surprised no one stepping up for this chance to get a quality bow at a give away price!

    If I had the funds, I would! I'm based in Australia, too; makes it all the more painful to watch... : (

    Seriously if anyone is interested I just have to let you know I'm on tour in Japan for 2 weeks from 10th October so if you want to make me an offer and get the bow sent before I leave best get in touch otherwise there will be a 2 week wait ;)
