    I have a Herman Lowendall bass made in Berlin in the 1880's. I bought this bass back in 1999 while studying Jazz in college and have barely played it for quite some time. It was setup by Bob Riccardi back when I bought it. It has some wear on it but is in very good condition except for a little separation at the bottom (see pics) which I'm told is very normal for a bass that hasn't been played much recently.

    It has a 42" scale and is currently strung with Thomastic Spirocore strings. This bass is a great playing instrument and has an unbelievable sound. I am looking for $9,500 but would listen to reasonable offers. I am not looking for another upright at the time so I'm looking for a straight sale as opposed to a trade. I live South Jersey so I'm located between Philly and NYC and would really prefer to not have to deal with shipping this lovely instrument!

    Please feel to respond or PM with any questions! Thanks!

    -I also have a very nice Mooradian Bag for it ImageUploadedByTalkBass1411522038.506498. ImageUploadedByTalkBass1411522048.124660. ImageUploadedByTalkBass1411521753.345945.

    Lowered the price to $9,500 and willing to listen to reasonable offers.

    No, it has not as of this time. I haven't had the time or extra money to get that done. Please PM me if you would like to discuss further! Thanks!
