Fantastic shape, plays great and sounds wonderful. Lots of sustain. Includes an Underwood pickup. Used very lightly the past 5 years because of my arthritis which does not allow me to play anymore so I must sell it. It is too nice to be a room ornament.

    Hello, do you have any video/recordings of the bass?

    Thanks for your inquiry. I am sorry to say that I do not. Is there something in particular I could try to get on video for you?

    Thanks for the reply. I'm a jazz (mostly pizz) player. I play a hybrid czech bass with Spiros. I think the bass sounds decent, but it's missing some treble that I hear in other basses from my favorite pro players. I'm wondering how much your bass projects the treble. Can a budget carved bass out perform the budget hybrid from around the same era for a decent jazz sound?

    Henry,

    Tough to answer this question. I am not a jazz player, I used it playing Americana/ folk/ Bluegrass. I might be able to find a jazz player to demo it but not sure if that would help you. Where are you located? If you have any thoughts on how to get a demo of the sound, I am open to suggestions!
