    I'm selling my 7/8 size Samuel Shen SB200 MAPLE. It's a fully carved flatback. Includes used mooradian gig bag, and I can throw in a fiberglass French bow if you need it.

    The bass has been used in the Memphis Symphony, Arkansas Symphony, Ohio Light Opera, Symphony of Northwest Arkansas, Fort Smith Symphony (used it on a recent recording for Naxos), and numerous other regional orchestras in Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri, and Mississippi.

    The bass was built in 2004 and I purchased in early 2005. I'm the original owner. I'm looking to upgrade.
    It has the normal belt scratches and slightly worn sides of a bass that's been used. Small chip on upper bout. - see pics.

    I'm in Northwest Arkansas. About 2 hours from Tulsa, 3.5 from Oklahoma City, 3.5 from Kansas City. This would be a great intermediate bass for a bigger person.

    String length - 41 3/4", body length is 45 3/4"

    Price is negotiable.

    this is a great deal folks.

    I have a very similar bass. I would say for folks who are not too large, I'm 5' 8" and have absolutely no problem playing mine. Smaller basses don't carry the same authority that this type of bass does in the low register!

    GLWTS, this is dirt cheap for what is secretly a rather high-grade instrument.
