3/4 Fully Carved Student Bass For Sale

  1. I am selling a Knilling 3/4 Bucharest model upright bass.

    - Flat Back
    - Great Higher-End Student Bass
    - Great for Orchestral or Jazz Music
    - Has D'Addario Helicore Orchestral Stings on
    - Comes with an Extra Set of D'Addario Helicore Hybrid Strings (Brighter with more pizz sustain. Great for Jazz)
    - Adjustable Bridge
    - Soft Case Included
    - List price: $3850
    - Asking: $2650

    The bass has had only one "accident." It was knocked over while it was laying on it's side during a jazz band rehearsal and a crack was put in the top under the E-string side F-hole. Luckily, the bass was insured so I was able to have a complete repair done. The top was taken off, the crack was cleaned out, re-glued, then reinforced with small diamond-shape braces. The repair was done by John Michael Smith, a fantastic bass repairman in St. Paul, MN. He told me that the crack occurred in a spot that would not severely hurt the sound of the bass and that there is very little chance of the crack ever reopening. He did a beautiful job.

    Other than that, there isn't really any abnormal wear. Just what you would expect from a bass that has been played a lot for 4 years.

    Sorry, a pickup is not included in the purchase of this bass.

    I will not ship, so if you are interested, you will have to pick it up. I live about half an hour north of the Minneapolis/ St. Paul area. If you are interested in trying it out before purchase, that can be arranged.

    I have many pictures of the bass and can get you any picture you would like.

    Thank you for looking and feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
