(Additional details posted on Upright Bass side of TalkBass.com) One of two basses remaining from the estate of the late bassist, Herb Mickman. This NS Design CR4 Omni is an electric bass player's choice for compatibility (same 34" string length as an electric bass), top-shelf sound (both piezo and magnetic pickups under each string), and craftsmanship (rock maple construction, built in Czech Republic). This instrument is flawless: no road wear, no repairs, no issues. Comes with standard tripod stand and new gig bag. -- Compare pricing with other NS Design Omni basses: NS website - $4650; Amazon - $3799; Sweetwater - $3399 Note: Buyer pays shipping: to Continental US, please add $150 to your offer.
