    Hello everyone!

    I have a circa 1950 double bass that I need to sell. Originally purchased from the New York Ballet, the bass is labled "Made in German Democratic Republic" which is typical for cold war imports. The bass has a beautiful orchestral voice and could be set-up for jazz/amplification. It has a low C extension and booming low end. The bass is in excellent condition and is located in Orlando, FL. A little more about the instrument.... it is a 7/8 size, two piece carved maple back (arched), top carved of wide grain spruce, fully purfled viol corners, ebony fittings, 42 3/4" string length, fingered C extension with E stop, adjustable bridge, and aluminum end pin. Asking price is $12,000 but will negotiate with the right buyer. For more pictures and info contact me at: whmarsh4@earthlink.net

    Updated August 4, 2003: Need to sell....
    New asking price $10,000.00. Will negotiate price / bag / bow, etc....
