    Hi. Listed this a while ago. Didn't get a sniff. But it is a gorgeous and unique bass. Removable neck. Shipping case.
    Gig bag. Made from solid cherry by an award-winning luthier. Plays like a dream. Sounds great with Realist PU.

    I have nearly ten grand in this instrument, which is in great condition. But I will let it go for $2000, shipping extra. To see it, go to Lutherie contemporaine

    With me it is a beautiful piece of furniture. With you, it could be a gigging travel monster.

    My pix won't be as good As Mario's. But if you want some, let me know.

    Sorry

    When you go to Mario's website, click first on English (unless you speak French), then Gallery, then Semi-Acoustic Bass with removable neck.

    Nice looking bass
    5th string? Low B or high C?

    Currently high C, but has successfully been Low B. Either is easy. Thanks for your interest.

    After soul searching on a truly stupid price, I have decided not to sell. Instead I have ordered a low B Obligato and will use this beast to rearrange organs at blues gigs. Thanks for the PMs and interest.

    My days of playing upright are over. My cost on this gorgeous instrument is (ouch) is about five times the asking price . Now strung low B (and I think I have an unused C string if the B isn't to your liking).

    Beats the hell out of any other Steinberger or other stick bass
    (I have owned many). Mario Lamarre is a world class luthier.

    $1600 shipped in the lower 48. Final (so to speak) offer.

    14 day trial period included. Your only exposure is return shipping.
     
  8. ouch what a deal! I so don't need this, but what a tempting offer for G.A.S. !
    Are you selling it with the gig bag and the metal shipping case?

    Does the instrument project acoustically? Do you have pictures of the actual bass?

    Projection acoustically: yes for rehearsal or a gig with an acoustic guitarist in a small room. Otherwise, needs reinforcement. But sounds more convincing amplified because it has a deep acoustic chamber, despite being highly portable.

    Give me your email address and I will send (tomorrow) pix of the instrument itself.

    Check will be in the mail, and I don't think this deal is coming undone. But Chicago Doubler is on deck.
