This is a 5/8 fully carved Juzek Upright Double Bass in excellent condition. This would serve as an excellent solo or jazz bass. The sound from this restored instrument is remarkable and massive, whether pizz. or arco. The low-end is positively bellowing. I can provide better photos and sound files upon request. Similar Juzeks tend to sell for $2500 to $3000 on eBay prior to major repairs. Appraisal can be provided. The Juzek features a full ebony tailpiece, new ebony endpin with removable tip, and new D'Adario orchestral strings, hybrids can be substituted. The bridge is new, and the string length is 38 and 3/4". The restoration of this instrument was performed by Rob Riccardi Jr. of Riccardi's Violin Shop in New Jersey, which specializes in Double Bass repairs. Website is here: http://www.riccardisviolinshop.com/index.htm We are both happy to promptly respond to any questions you have about the instrument. Upon sale, we prefer a pick-up arrangement (South Jersey or Philadelphia), but I will be willing to deliver it anywhere in the Eastern US (within reason) for travel expenses. Third-party shipping could also be an option, but I cannot be held responsible for damages in transit and therefore do not advise this method. www.riccardisviolinshop.com EDIT: Sorry for breaking the rules and not listing a price. I read the Sticky, but obviously not that well. Please email for better quality photos and sound files, or with any questions. Anyone in the area is welcome to try it out.
