  1. Morning, all. My truck broke down and I need cash to pay for the repairs, so my current project bass is for sale as-is. It is a complete instrument that will need a new set of bridge adjusters, glue and elbow grease. I'm asking $500 or best offer, and I am willing to remove the neck and block from the ribs so that it can be shipped at buyer's expense. I have a trunk in case someone would prefer that the complete instrument be shipped. PayPal is OK with me.

    The bass is a petite 3/4 size flatback. The ribs and back are labeled "Made in Czechoslovakia" and my best guess is that they date from the 1930s. The neck and scroll appear to be German and slightly newer. Ebony fingerboard with bevel. The top could be recent Czech or Chinese.

    Since the photos below were shot, I have removed the back for repairs, but it could be glued back on for ease of transportation.
