  1. I posted this a while ago but still no takers, so I just thought I'd post it again.

    Gorgeous early 20th Century German double bass for sale. Likely built between the wars. I have used this to play mainly jazz gigs at country clubs, bars, fine dining restaurants and perform in plays and college orchestras. It was purchased from Rumano Solano (http://solanobasses.com/) in 2009. It's not a Solano build but it was a trade-in from someone who was purchasing one of his basses. It's in excellent condition and has been set up by Rumano himself. It comes with a soft case. I am only selling it because I'm moving overseas and can't take it with me. It has an absolutely beautiful sound. $7,000 OBO.

    Measurements: Full height: 71" Body height: 44" String length: 41.5" Upper width: 19.5" Lower width: 25" Scroll to shoulder: 29.5" Width at nut 1.6"
