    hey guys,

    i am selling my acoustic bass (built somewhere between 1850-1865). its an amazing instrument but i can't play it anymore... developed tendonitis and haven't been able to play it in over 2 years, and as much as i love it and want to pass it on to my girls, i need to pass it on... it deserves to be played.

    so the skinny, I've owned it for around 8 years, the previous owner was rodney jordan (fsu professor) and before that was laymen jackson (played for donald byrd) and was actually on a few blue note records.

    bass is very very very loud (used it for straight ahead gigs without an amp for years). its a flat back with a d neck.

    currently its at ronald sachs violins on consignment, but id love to stretch out to other places. its been setup, had crack repaired, new bridge, new strings, the whole 9 yards!

    would be a great bass for jazz or classical.
    42 inch string length

    this bass is at his shop for 14K, I'm only asking for $12,000 NOW $8,000 FOR THIS WEEK ONLY [TILL 7/15/2016]. After that it goes back but to $9,250.00 and will sit at that price. PLEASE TXT me or call me with the number listed below. Not online for the next week due to a crazy film score deadline. The bass has had about 2K of repairs done to it alone.

    again i hate to sell it, but its time....
