Somebody is selling me a quite expensive King double bass, and he claims it to be 50+ years old. It goes for $2,500++ converted from local currency. I'm not sure how accurate is that, I checked the King website and didn't find a figure. Looking at their models, endorsers and workmen I would estimate them to be not more than 5-10 years in the business. He even claims that it could really run for $3,000 but he admitted that he's a guitarist, and the sales pitch includes the bass being a house furniture, so it sounds fishy. I just need to get some confirmation before I call him on this, and maybe get a jaw dropping discount , but maybe after my teacher approves of it as a beginner bass. Thanks. PS - I'm scouting for a double bass lately, so that's why I have many posts about brands and such.
