    Bought this bass about a year ago with intentions of playing bluegrass. Unfortunately, as a graduate student, time is in short supply and I have played it very little. I'll be moving for clinical rotations soon and do not want to have to move the bass with me out of fear of it being damaged during the process.
    I'm a complete rookie to the double bass, so take that as a disclaimer regarding my general knowledge. From what I have been able to gather, this bass was made in the early 50's. It is a Plywood bass. The label is still in place and there is a picture of it attached to this post. Neck is in good shape and has not been broken. The previous owner had an adjustable bridge professionally installed, and the bass is in good playing condition. It does have plenty of character, and in the pictures you should be able to see the wear on the instrument.
    If you have questions, feel free to contact me and I will do my best to answer to the best of my ability

    I just bought the identical bass on the west coast. These are very nice instruments, big and solid, with a great sound. Nice price too!
