    Up for sale is my laminated Czech bass. The bass was most likely made during the late 1950's or 1960's by an unknown luthier/company. For being over 40 years old it's in pretty good shape overall.

    As far as laminated basses go, it has a really nice singing tone and I've gotten many compliments on it. The bass responds fairly well with the bow and has a decent pizzicato. I've never used a pickup with it, so I don't know how that would sound. I've found that this bass gets the most out of hybrid strings, as many laminated basses do. I have had a lot of different strings on this bass: Flexicor, Original-Felxicor, Helicores and Evah Pirazzi strings. Personally, Evah Pirazzi's were my preferred strings for this bass. The high tension strings gave it a great sound, but ruined the overall response of the bass.

    This bass would be great for a younger musician who's looking to own a bass instead of rent, or someone looking for a nice bass without the required maintenance of a fully carved bass.

    If it's any consolation this bass did get me into, and half way through my undergrad before I thought I needed something else.

    I am NOT interested in trades, sorry.

    $2500

    Specs:
    Eb Neck
    String Length: 41 3/8
    UB: 20 1/2
    LB: 26
