Benedict Puglisi Bass in Australia

Discussion in 'For Sale: Double Basses' started by labravajazz, Mar 26, 2014.

  1. On offer in Sydney, Australia is this Puglisi Bass owned by me from new in 2002.
    Reluctant sale but this a great opportunity for a pro or serious student to buy a top shelf modern handmade bass by Australia's top award winning luthier.
    I will load some photos later but just listing for sale right now.
    Brief description is large 3/4 easy to play violin corners, carved back and classical, jazz or allround very good bass - his basses are used in professional orchestras and jazz players etc - and Christian McBride recently purchased one!
    C Extension (removable) works beautifully - by Martyn Bailey in UK.
    In great condition, though has done a lot of travelling over 10 plus years since new. Very robust and lively versatile instrument.
    Puglisi basses sell for much more than I am asking $20,000 USD
    Finding a buyer in Australia is preferred but consideration given to making this bass available on international market also so feel free to register interest.
