Engelhardt S-1?

Discussion in 'Basses [DB]' started by c-ba55, Feb 8, 2005.

  1. I can buy a well-cared for and upgraded Engelhardt S-1 for $750. Not an Engelhardt ES-1 and not a Kay S-1. What exactly is this thing, and what's the skinny on it? I haven't played it yet.

  2. Check the newbie links at the top of the forum for lots of details. Also, try doing a search of this forum. Spend some time reading and then come back with any specific questions. There are several current and former (I owned an ES-9 for several years) owners of e'hardts who haunt the boards and can probably fill any gaps for you.

    Sounds like you may be looking at a very early Engelhardt - 1970 or so. Obviously, the "E" in the model designations signifies "Engelhardt," but I suppose there's a chance that change did not take place immediately. Perhaps it's a 'transition' bass... A shot in the dark, but does the bass have outer linings?

    Without regard to its vintage, as described, it is likely a very good value at the price you mentioned.

    A well-setup, new ES1 will approach $1,700-1,800 by the time it is all said and done.

    I assume the bass features ebony fittings, etc.
