This bass is a gamba-shaped ¾ Christopher hybrid (carved top, plywood back and sides). I bought the bass new in November 2004 and played it almost daily until June 2007. Since then its been played very little and is in good shape. Aftermarket modifications and additions: Custom ziracote tailpiece made by Mike Pecanic Adjustable bridge Bobelock bass bag Id be willing to sell the bass as is (including the bag) for $1900 (no trades offers, please). If youre interested in trying the bass out or have any questions about it, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
