    I have a Eberhard Meinel carved bass from the early 1990's for sale.
    $2500. I can't figure how to reduce my pictures to get them loaded so I am attaching my Craigslist listing with all the details.
    Thanks for looking, Larry

    Hi guys, I have had no interest shown for this bass. Is there no demand or am I out of line with the price? It is a very nice carved, German instrument and it surprises me that I have not even had a question about it. Any input would be appreciated.
    Thanks, Larry

    I think that you would probably get more interest if you post pictures here as well as providing the details that you provide in your Craigslist post. The best way to post pictures is to use a photo site like Photobucket and then use the IMG tag to post them here. The IMG tag works like this

    [ IMG ] link to your photo here [ /IMG ]

    ^when you post the actual photos, remove the spaces inside the brackets.

    I would love to hear a recording. Or even some comments about its sound would be helpful.

    Also post string length, rib size and bouts. What kind of strings does it have? Does it come with a case or bow? Try to get a better pic that shows the grain of the wood. Also take pics inside. Outside makes the bass look very red. Too bright.
