    This bass belongs to Gary Haase, and @tumba94 and I both work with Gary. I'm attaching pictures in the post, and you can feel free to direct any questions to either Leo (@tumba94) or me, Mark (mrufino1). Arrangements can be made for you to see the bass in person in NYC or the surrounding area if you wish. Thanks for looking!

    I would like the scroll and tuners, side view, and a full view of the top if possible. Measurements would also be good and if there is any sort of label or indication of maker.

    Ok, I’ll take those tomorrow. I know Gary has owned this bass since 1978.

    here’s some clips of Gary playing it live:

    Sorry for the delay, I wasn’t able to get there until today.

    There is no label indicating the maker. I can tell you that this is a really beautiful sounding bass, Gary was playing it while I was taking the pictures. Very deep but transparent sound.
