    This is a flat back German bass. When I purchased it from Barry Kolstien he said it was from the late 20's or early 30's. I purchased it 4-5 years ago and Barry didn't know much about it's history but it seems to have been restored in the not-to-distant past and looks nearly new. There are a couple newer Baranyi basses in Omaha that also look fairly similar. The bass is really a player's bass. It is also a very unique bass. I have not seen another bass quite like it.

    I really do love this bass, it sounds great for jazz and solo/chamber work. I have; however, found another bass that has caught my eye and I need to pass this one on to a new owner to afford the other one.

    Upper Bout Width: 20"
    C Bout Width: 14.25"
    Lower Bout Width: 25"
    Depth at Heel: 7"
    Depth at Lower Bout: 8.75"
    Body Length: 43"
    String Length: 40.5"
    Location: Lincoln, NE
    Other: Hole for Laborie Endpin, Includes Planet Wing Pickup

    Bass is appraised at $12,000 I am asking $10,000 $9,000 to sell it quickly. I am; however, willing to travel fairly far to show the bass to interested parties.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

    Bumping. Price dropped. I can also bring this to the ISB convention in Fort Collins, CO in June if there is interest in it.
