    I have a tailpiece from an old three-string bass that would be cool for a music room display (my use for it) or a restoration project (maybe Dragonetti and Bottesini were on to something ;) ). Although it is black I don't believe it's made out of ebony and it has a small, decorative mother of pearl dot with a design etched on it. Since three-string basses were not manufactured past the early 20th century it's probably at least 100 years old and in good condition considering that fact. I'd like $35 shipped for it, PayPal okay. I'll post a pic once I find my digital camera.

    I could be the only 3 string bass player you'll likely run into.
    Thanks.

    Mark, I've sent you an e-mail on this. It's still available, although someone else has expressed interest as well. Who new there were so many three-stringers? :)
