NYC 2002- Kolstein Fendt 7/8

  1. Asking $8,000

    A 2002 7/8 Kolstein Fendt.
    This has been my primary bass for the last few years and saw me through conservatory and many years in the jazz trenches in NYC. This bass is LOUD. Huge, dark sound with a lot of projection. There are a few bumps and bruises on it but all crack repairs/seams have been done at David Gage's shop and the bass is healthy in every way.

    I play almost exclusively jazz but it has a powerful arco sound and would be an excellent mid-level professional/advanced conservatory student instrument for classical playing.

    Comes with:

    New tail piece, new endpin assembly, Gage realist pickup, Helicore Hybrid Medium gauge strings.

    The dimensions.
    Overall body length: 45 in.
    Width at the upper bout: 20 1/2 in.
    Width at the center bout: 15 1/2 in.
    Width at the lower bout: 27 in.
    Mensure (string length): 41 5/8 in.

    Also, forgot to add earlier, I'm amenable to someone trying to trade up + $ from a hybrid or something like that if it's something nice.
