    An inexpensive job-winning bass. Copy of the Minnesota-owned bass formerly attributed to Gofriller, made around 2000 by Chi Yang (spelling?) in (maybe?) Chicago. Not a lot of info on the bass's origins or maker other than this was the last bass he made that I know of before founding Christopher Instruments.
    41.75" string length, Eb-ish neck (almost feels in between), chromatic extension by Joey Naeger in Houston, recently set up by Guarneri House. Very playable for its 7/8s size, and really puts out sound.
    The bass has earned spots at Curtis, Rice, Indiana, and several orchestras and has served me very well in auditions. I've made a fairly large upgrade and won't be needing this bass anymore.
    The bass is currently on trial with an interested party but pending its return I'll post detailed pictures and measurements.
    Comes with a brand new Bobelock case.
