For sale Shen 100 designed for AES

Discussion in 'For Sale: Double Basses' started by Mark Sacchetti, Mar 29, 2013.


  1. This is a Gamba style body. It was designed by Shen for AES and has different features.

    Here is a description
    I'll try to give some info without getting "sales-y" about it. On the Shen end of things, here is what seperates it from a Shen SB100 stock bass:

    The outline is gamba, not violin cornered, so right off the bat it's a different bass, which we make exclusively for AES.

    Varnish (nitro cel lacquer) is a bit darker and low gloss.

    The smaller laminate layer inside which is made to echo graduations on a carved bass is a different shape than the stock, per Arnold's specs.

    The machines are not ours, I believe he usually uses Rubner plates.

    He uses our tailpiece, but his wire.

    Arnold's bridge, -v- our stock bridge.

    I'm sure that beyond that there is alot to be said about what happens to it when it's in Arnold's shop.

    Moderators: If I crossed the line on sales type info, please edit or delete as you see fit.

    There is a Suped up Shen thread for more info ImageUploadedByTalkBass1364579688.008560.

    Asking 2750 includes stand and bass bag. Buyer pays Shipping fees and I would prefer local pickup here in Pittsburgh.

    To clarify, these were made for the New Standard business, not my personal shop. The idea was to market an entry-level model to bring folks with a smaller budget into the New Standard family. The product was good, but unfortunately demand did not materialize, so the project was discontinued.
     
  6. Where's the price?

    I think you MUST list a price.
