Hello, Friends ... I am selling this beautiful bass because I am no longer in need of it and wish it to fall into the hands of someone who can appreciate it. It is in darn near new condition and comes with a french bow and rosin. This the active series, made in the Czech Republic by the same craftsmen who build NS Design's most advanced instruments. Check out the website here. I have added sticky reflective tape side dot markers which can be easily peeled off with no damage to the instrument. These basses go for $1729 new, but since I would like to it go asap, I am practically giving it away. I've had it for less than a year. There is nary a flaw except a few tiny nicks on the headstock. The price includes shipping in the lower 48. The bass will be shipped in the same shipping in which I received it from Sweetwater. Thank you Guys so much!
