    I am looking to trade my 1980 Emanuel Wilfer double bass and Meinel pernambuco bow for a Fodera, Ritter, or other high dollar bass. I am listing on the bass guitar site (instead of the double bass site) because I am interested in trading for electric basses. The bass has violin corners and is in great condition; I have had the bass for the past 20 years. The Wilfer was appraised at $15,000 and the bow is valued at $700, but I am willing to list the trade value of both at $10,000. I will consider multiple basses or a bass plus cash. I will only consider 5-string basses. Let me know if you are interested. We can discuss shipping or I am possibly willing to meet somewhere.

    Thanks for looking. And, feel free to PM me.

    I have plenty of high resolution pics I can email if you are interested. Just let me know what angles you would like to see.

    Being from Germany, I have played lots of E.Wilfer double basses, and they all were examples of outstanding workmanship. Good luck with the sale.

    Are you looking for fretted or fretless?

    Fretted or fretless is fine (as long as it is a 5-string). I play both.

    I will consider dropping the trade value for the perfect bass(es). Also, depending on here you are located, I will consider meeting in person. I would rather do this as opposed to shipping.

    I have high resolution pics for anyone interested.

    Here are a couple of more pictures of the fingerboard and the bridge with the Fishman pickup.

    I have received some really nice offers, but this double bass is still available. I am really looking for a Fodera or Ritter, but I would consider multiple basses, or bass +cash. Again, looking for 5 strings, but I may consider a 6 string...Smiths, Roscoes, Elricks, Sadowsky, Alleva-Coppolos, etc. Let me know what you got. Again, we can discuss shipping or meeting if you are interested.

    The Wilfer is a great bass. It is small and is really designed to be a solo bass. I have played it various symphonies and jazz trios for the past 20 years.

    For all of you West Coast Folks, I will be in Las Vegas and LA next month. I could bring the bass with me if you are interested.

    I will trade this bass straight up for a 5 string Fodera or Ritter. No cash will need to be added.
