    1950’s era, 3/4 blonde Framus laminated upright bass. The bass was rebuilt and restored by Bob Beerman at the Bass Violin Shop in Greensboro in 2009. The rebuild/restore and gig bag were $2300 (I can provide a receipt upon request). The bass has remained in my home for the entire time except for a couple of gigs. The following items were addressed during the rebuild process:

    • Two carbon fiber rods installed in the neck for stability
    • Repaired top and glued top to ribs
    • New Sitka spruce soundpost installed
    • New tailgut assembly w/new wire and ferrule installed
    • New deluxe adjustable German-made bridge installed
    • Fingerboard was reshaped and dressed
    • Neck reset
    • New heelpiece
    • All the edges were reglued
    • Varnished top and back
    • New carbon fiber endpin installed
    • New Obligato strings

    Also included is a new stand, fiberglass bow and leather quiver and a new very nice, heavy duty, padded Mooradian gig bag.

    $2100 OBO for a great playing and sounding laminated bass that is good and loud and also a very cool looking bass (w/that blonde finish). Prefer to sell but will consider trades/partial trades for electric upright basses (BSX, Azola).

    NO SHIPPING. Must pick up in Raleigh NC or can drive 3-4 hour radius of Raleigh NC to meet. More pics available upon request. Serious inquiries only.
