    Selling my 2002 (actually tag shows 1999) Musima 3/4 size hybrid double bass. Hope to find a good home for it since I haven't played it in years. I used it in college for a couple of semesters back in 2008-Jazz band and Orchestra. Has Helicore Hybrids on it. It would certainly make a good beginner/intermediate student bass for orchestra. But it also has a really nice voice for use in a jazz setting. Comes with a TKL gig bag that is in great shape.
    Its only issue is that there is a paper thin gap where the top of the back meets the neck joint and the finish around the neck joint is cracking. It has been like that since I've had it but, since I decided to sell it I took it to my local luthier and asked him what he thought about it. He said it should be fixed at some point but it didn't look like a major problem. He quoted me a price of $75 to do the work. Taking that into consideration I'm setting the price at $1900. If it didn't need the work I would be asking $2000. There is also a spot on the top where the ball ends of the strings rubbed during its initial shipping from the retailer. Its a minor issue that never worried me besides not looking totally perfect. One other small dent in the lower bout's edge. Other than that she's great. Plays easy and sounds great.
    I hope to find an interested player in my general area because I haven't shipped a bass before. That being said I am not totally against the idea of having it shipped. I will post pictures on this thread this evening. Just wanted to get the ball rolling. Thanks for viewing and let me know if you have any questions.

    Price drop on bass to $1700. Have a French Brazilwood bow from Gollihur and a Realist copper foil pickup with original packaging also for sale. At $1800 I will include those items with the bass. They are available individually at $90 for the bow and the Realist is $100. Save $90 if you go in on all three.

    Bump for audio samples?
    If anyone is considering this bass and thinks audio samples might help send me a PM. I should be able to supply some if you promise not to listen to my out of practice upright playing.
    Thanks for looking.

    Forgot to mention she's a German girl and has no bevel on the fingerboard. Will post a pic or two of the label later today.
    Thanks for looking.

    Here's pics of the label inside and front and back of the tag that came from the factory. I believe the tag shows made in 1999.

    I know these pics are a little dark-just showing off the girl from another angle. And now without the pickup too.
