    Anybody looking for a smaller double bass, fully carved?

    Here are the measurements:

    > string length: 39"/99cm
    > overall length (scroll to bottom): 69"/175cm
    > body length: 40"/101.5cm
    > fingerboard length (to B-flat!): 30.5"/77.5cm
    > body depth: 7.5"/19cm
    > upper bout width: 19"/48.5cm
    > middle bout width: 12.5"/32cm
    > lower bout width: 24.5"/62.25c

    This bass was made by George Borun (San Diego, CA), constructed from a partial pattern attributed to Antonio Stradivari, ca. early 1700's. It is over 10 years ago, and was kept in excellent condition. No repairs needed; not a single problem! Just adjusted by Lisa Gass in Los Angeles.

    My asking price is $5000, but I am open to trade offers as well. You can contact me at: szusman@comcast.net
