*** PLEASE NOTE - THIS INSTRUMENT HAS BEEN SOLD *** FS: 5-String Merchant Vertical Bass (electric upright) Full 3/4 size maple neck, really nice ebony fingerboard, 41" scale, mahogany body. Electronics: Barbera transducer bridge pickup with volume pot. Also includes an Underwood pickup I sometimes switch off with. Adjustable bridge. Removable upper right bout. Grover tuners. Thomastik weich except for the low B, which is wein. Excellent condition. Note: has a number of small screw holes made by previous owner on the back and sides of the instrument to mount a brace he used to help balance it when sitting. I removed it. Bill Merchant filled and refinished the holes when he serviced the bass after I purchased it. Hard to see, no effect structurally, but I feel I should mention it. For more info on the bass see http://www.merchantbass.com/vertical/verticalhome.htm Asking $1400.00. (new price is $2750.00) Prefer to have you try it and purchase in NYC, but if you're really interested, can live with a no-return policy and live far away from here I'll ship it (you pay.) Thanks for looking!
