    1934 King Moretone 3/4 Bass - $2500

    This was the first year this bass was made - this one is somewhere about #240 something. I can send back specific info as per requested. This bass is solid, much more solid than later models - specifically the tuners as some people complain about. The only modifications that I can tell are that there has been a coat of over varnish applied and the neck has been slimmed down a little. Never been broken in its long life.

    This bass also has a great sound to it and plays great. I don't really want to sell it but I am having trouble with the 43" string length. My other bass is a Karl Meisel plywood with a 41 1/2" string length and it's tough to switch between the two.

    I am looking to sell this bass to buy another plywood with a 41 1/2" string length like an upton or another old German bass. So if you are looking for a a great sounding bass and have an old plywood of equal value, I'd be up for a possible trade. I live in central New York and would be will to travel to make a trade. I would prefer not to ship this bass.

    here's a link to the place I got if from. Mark is a great guy to work with.

    Laminated basses

    I can send more pics if anyone is interested.

    thanks
