    Back up for sale is my Williams and Sons Ton-Klar German made carved wood bass.

    I bought this from No Strings Attached in Gloden Valley, MN about 3 years ago.
    Pickup fully functional and sounds great.
    There is a noticeable repair in the neck, but it is sturdy and feels fine.
    This is a great price for a German made, carved upright bass. Includes soft-shell case.
    Scale length - 42"
    3/4 size

    I decided to include the bow in the bass sale instead of on it's own. It is a French Brazil wood bow, recently re-haired.

    Yes, although I'm in no rush to sell- it is still available.
     
  4. Raise the price. $2k for a carved '50s Hofner? Crazy.

    I remember when I was a kid, the Boston Youth Symphony had three or four of these on the bass rack for us to use at rehearsals - they were always the first to go because the sound was so good! Good luck with your sale.
