    Love this thing, but I need the room, hence the price drop..

    Jug Band Bass, wash tub bass, or Country Bass

    1 string rather than 12, but there's no choice for that in posting classified...

    This is a string bass so hopefully it should go here...

    A family instrument, (not my family), made some time in the mid 20th century in the south east.

    Big sound with handle for tuning which helps immensely with staying in tune.

    Large metal drum body leads to a big sound.

    Single traditional string for plucking.

    An american piece of musical art.

    Perfect for a Jug band or traditional country band.

    Also great for a regular bassist with a good ear.

    I'm just not using it as much as I thought that I would so maybe someone else can?

    It's big and on the heavy side so local Los Angeles sale preferable.

    Could the neck piece be safely dismounted for transport?

    I think so, it's just two allen wrench bolts and interior nuts.

    I don't see a reason that you couldn't, but the nuts are old so it might be better to use new ones that would slide easily.

    It is a very long neck though, about 4.5 feet.
