I'm selling this circa 1998 Gabute bass made from Calantas. It has a 41.25" string length, low sloping shoulders, a huge sound, and is very easy to play. Besides being well-suited for orchestral and jazz playing, it would also make someone a great solo instrument. All seams and cracks have been expertly repaired, and I've added some upgrades since buying it--new endpin, raised saddle, and new bridge. Email me for questions or more pics. I'm located in Boston, and will deliver within a four hundred mile radius.
