    Unlabeled fully carved double bass thought to be built in the later half of the 19th century in the Tirol region of Europe. I have had it for 14 years and had a top-off restoration done 12 years ago. It has been completely solid and stable ever since. Comes with a Mike Pecanic tailpiece and Kolstein cover. Currently strung with Bel Cantos.

    Asking $6000. Would prefer not to ship but am open to that possibility.

    String length is 42 inches.
     
  7. Curious, is this blockless, or has a neck block been installed?

    I'm not in the market right now but I've owned 3 of those. Neils Pederson used one his whole life. If the bridge height is high enough to not warrant a rest and if it's healthy it's a great value.

    Yup. I had one for 35 years. The good ones are really good.

    I've played quite a few of them and they were all good.
