Hello! I have read threads on TalkBass for years, but this is my first time making an account and posting. I am selling my fully carved Shen Gemunder 7/8 Roundback with a C-Extension and solo extension fingerboard. The bass is an unmarked prototype of their Gemunder model with a spruce top and maple back and sides. This bass is a round back as opposed to the current Willow models which are flat back. Mike Shank installed a new fingerboard and the C-extension on this bass in 2020. Early Irving Sloane tuners -- not what currently come on newer Shen basses. Mike Shank estimated the bass was made circa 2000. The bass has a 42 1/8" string length. The bass was drilled by a previous owner, and I have the very small wooden endpin they used with it. I am 5 11" and the angle they drilled at did not work for me, but Mike Shank said it could be re-drilled. It is a great bass, but it is just a little too big for me. Looking to move to something more appropriately sized for myself. Bass has a deep, powerful sound. Well suited for orchestral work. Could work for jazz too, but I don't have a pickup on there at the moment and I have it strung with Belcantos A-G and a Spirocore C string. Great professional freelancing workhorse bass. I am asking for $11,500. The bass is priced to move. I really want this bass to end up in the right hands. Happy to drive a bit or meet half way for people who want to audition the bass. I'm located around Baltimore, MD.
