    Hi All,

    When I was about 20, many years ago, I bought this bass from a local pawn shop after seeing Stanley play one.

    It is a 50's or 60's Framus Triumph. It was in good playing shape but the finish was a little rough. So me and my brother began sanding it to get that gold sparkle off. We never completed the project, and I've been lugging it around ever since.

    It is disassembled, and in need of someone to love it. I believe I have all of the parts for it, and there are no major structural damages, from my "just pulled it out of the closet" inspection, it looks like a finish and setup is all it will take to get this into shape.

    I know they are rare, and have only seen them for sale 3 times since e-bay came into existence, yet I do not know exactly what it is worth.

    So I'm putting this out here for now, and have it listed it over on the double bass side as well.

    I only play electric 4 strings these days and have a preference for pre-CBS Fenders (refins are fine), RI's, CS's or boutique versions of Fenders. I could also use a good fretless. Or if you happen to have any higher end recording gear (preamps, AD/DA converters, etc.)

    I will post pics and assembly/verification progress over the next week.

    Let me know what you think and thanks.
