    ** THIS BASS NOW UNDER PROVISIONAL OFFER - ENQUIRIES STILL WELCOME**

    I can't keep all my basses. I'm never selling my B+H, and now I've fallen in love with a '38 M-2 ... and so, one of the most spectacular examples of vintage American plywood in Europe (the world..?), is on the market. It's just too nice not to play...

    [​IMG]

    - No damage, original neck and tuners intact.
    - Original nitrocellulose finish, almost pristine except for typical surface cracking as seen on many similar basses.
    - Beautiful flamed ribs and back.
    - Brand new ebony fingerboard (widened slightly to give standard spacing at nut), brand new Despiau bridge, cut for Underwood pick up (not included). Set up by luthier Adrian Warrick.
    - Set up for plain gut strings (currently strung with Lenzner E/A, Labella D/G at 11, 10, 10, 9 mm - not included in asking price)
    - Serial #55292

    To a discerning buyer, £2600 (2,850EUR) ono

    Clean, pure, controlled, powerful sound, no buzzes ... ah, it's impossible to describe sound I know ... listen for yourself here (acoustic, into cheap vocal mic .. probably a bit close, sorry).
