    Jan Kulik German bow. Very good shape. Recently rehaired by Greg Wylie. Some wear on the finish where you touch it is about all that is noticable as far as wear and tear. Appraised by Mike Shank for "$500 - $900", and I believe it retailed for around $1,500 5 or 6 years ago.

    $750, firm, or trade for similar French bow, or will add cash for upgrade to a higher quality French.

    I have a Bow that I would be wiling to trade. I got This bow in an unexpected way. It is an umarked French bow that came with a case. It has a stamp "Germany" behind the frog making it over 60 years old. It is missing its wrapping and leather and shows some wear. I don't know what it is worth but I do know that it is better than the German bow I am used to. It gets more sound out of the bass. It measures 28 and 1/2" I do not have a scale to weigh it. It can be viewed at http://benridgeway.com/bow/index.htm

    Mine's out on approval right now, but I'll check back if it doesn't sell.
