Hi everyone, I am offering for sale a 7/8 size double bass made by Joseph Holovnia of Massachusetts in 1994. It's a wonderful instrument: ebony fingerboard/tailpiece/nut, adjustable bridge, @42.75" scale and a thick (D) neck, violin corners. The bass is a dream to play and the sound (pizz. in particular--lots of singing sustain but very rich at the same time) never fails to earn compliments from fellow players, luthiers, recording engineers, and audience members alike. Great for jazz players (like me), but Holovnia's basses feel at-home in the orchestra as well. $9,000 includes a deluxe Mooradian cover. I'm the first owner and never considered selling the bass until a friend dangled a deal on his fancy German bass in my face... Located in NYC--please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or what pictures I have. Thanks! And if no one wants to buy this bass...then I will never have to regret selling it!
