    For sale is a near mint condition NS Design CR5M. A couple small nicks are highlighted in the pics. Thus "near mint"!

    The instrument has been kept in a smoke free house since I purchased it about a year ago. I never gigged with it. It has a new set of Thomastik Spirocore Solo strings on the E, A, D, and G, and the high C is an NS Traditional Medium. I tried a Thomastik Spirocore Medium high C and it produced the most unusable metallic over mwah sound I'd ever heard, so I went with the NS Traditional and it matched the Spirocores perfectly.

    Comes with the deluxe padded gig bag, and the deluxe stand.

    I am an extreme packer, so you can expect this instrument to be well packed, whomever the carrier.

    Selling only to the continental US please. Shipping weight is 14lb. Box dimensions are 52 by 10 by 10 inches. I'll ship any carrier you like. My zip is 48375. PM me your zip and I'll add shipping to the cost, I don't like to overcharge for shipping (or undercharge either!).

    Price is firm, and buyer pays shipping.

    Do you suppose a low B string could be used rather than the high C?

    Absolutely. It's very common, I believe more common, to have a low B on the CR5M. That is how it came to me when I bought it, and one of the reasons it has a new set of Thomastics on it, as I enjoy a high C.
    I believe I still have the low B it came to me with.
