    I’m selling off my starter bass, which would be a great starter bass for someone else!

    I really do not know much about her provenance, except that it was given to me about 15 years ago when I was a waitress by 2 longtime customers who’s dad played this bass in the 50s & 60s in nyc jazz clubs. At best estimates (by nyc bass enthusiasts, including Jeff Bollbach, David Gage’s shop, and Biase-Fantoni fine instruments), this bass likely dates back to the 1930s and is likely European. It will be sold with a used mooradian 3/4 size bag (pictured).

    This bass is good for jazz, bluegrass, rock bands, Americana music, and whatever else you may need. I used it through my undergrad, was adequate for college orchestra and recitals. She does need some work- the neck is quite thin and could use a re-gluing, most maintenance has been done by Jeff Bollbach on Long Island. I had the sound post adjusted by John Beal about a year and a half ago.

    Please come and play this bass, I’d like it to go to someone who can appreciate it. Located in Brooklyn near the Atlantic/Barclays stop!

    Hi! Likely not, I’d like to sell the bass and bag together, but if someone doesn’t need the bag I’ll let you know!
