    Yep.(Guy finally responded saying its a Christopher DB501) He was selling it for $300 but to my demise it's a 1/4 scale :(

    Christopher's current numbering scheme would make that a very nice fully carved bass (my friend has one; I have a 401, also fully carved). I believe they changed their numbering in around 2002, so if the bass is older than that, it probably is laminated.

    Perhaps my sense of scale is deceiving me, but if that's a 1/4 scale bass, it's standing beside a very low mantlepiece. Might pay to get the vendor to put a tape measure to it and confirm. $300 seems like a good deal even if it is laminated, assuming no major defects.

    Where is it located? For $300 I would be instrested in it for our local school program.

    Thanks,
