I have this 3/4 carved Czech bass recently restored with new neck shim, fingerboard, bridge, tailpiece, endpin, soundpost and strings. Appraised 10/05 by Gage at $10,000. It has a good feel and a big sound. Bows well and has a nice tension for jazz playing with the new neck angle. . I will take $6500 cash or consider trade for 5 string Fodera or Sadowsky or Lakland electric bass and/or Eden amp and/or cash. The bass is in NYC.
