    model ec-1, 3/4 (full) size. better than new condition because it's been set up and has brand new thomastik spirocore medium strings on it.

    i bought it new in mid may and have only gigged with it a few times. the only reason i'm selling is because i just got an old kay bass and, due to the size of my house, one of the three of us has to move out. sorry engelhardt.

    these sell for about $1000 w/ a really bad factory setup and really bad factory strings. the new strings on it go for $100ish. so again, this is better than new for $850.

    there is only one flaw in the finish, a mark smaller than 1/8" by 1/4."

    very warm, round, dark tone. pretty loud, too.

    would prefer not to ship it but will if buyer pays for professional packing and freight.

    i am willing to drive a couple hours from torrington, ct., to deliver, meet half way, etc.

    feel free to e-mail me questions and i could e-mail pics to serious buyers.

  3. Tim,
    I'm Gassing for an upright... but can't swing it yet.
    I drank WAY too much coffee... WAY too late.

    so here I am bored @ 4am, too wired too sleep & too spent to jam, clicking WWW links of TBer's

    WOW, I really dig the live 3 stuff! Too bad the sound didn't catch on, y'all had something!

    the solo stuff is pretty happening too :bassist:

    ....ok, back to the regularly scheduled classified ad, take it away Tim!

    jim: the bass is still for sale. it's in the bed and i'm sleeping on the floor ;-)

    speddling: glad someone digs three! that looks like a pretty sweet 5 string, btw.

  5. Thanks for the tunes! I'll be in touch about getting your CDs in the near future. I was listening to the mp3s again this morning.

    Thanks, I can't get enough of my bass. I'm ordering another this winter.

    Can you email me a pic, and the specs/details.

    Edit: I checked the specs on Bob Gollihurs site,
    I might be interested depending on price.
    Is it still available?



    But, there is always a way ...

    Hi tim - what kind of old kay did you buy and why do you like the engelhart better? I am just curious, as I have an old kay and have been wondering how it would be different than a new Engelhart.

    thor, e-mail me privately for pics etc. ([email protected])
    you can hear a soundclip of the engelhardt at www.musicof3.com/ubclip.mp3

    erik, i do like my kay (a 56 concert series better than the engelhardt, which is why the engie is going.)

    the new bass is a great bass, don't get me wrong, and sounds sweet, but there's something about holding an old piece of wood that just does it for me ;-)!!

    Just posting a follwup on this thread, I got the bass baby! It's great, and as advertised, better than new. Tim is a nice guy, very cool to chat with, I couldn't thank him enough.
