    The time has come to part ways with this old gal. After over a decade of solid service, my needs have changed. I’d rather she gets played more. A solid instrument for grad school and professional jazz/ regional orchestral work.

    Late 1800’s
    Flat back
    Eb neck
    43” scale, but well set up and easy to play
    Great jazz bass
    Recently had back braces replaced
    CF end pin
    Drilled for Rabbath style end pin
    Fishman full circle p-up

    Let’s find this bass a new home!
    $6000/negotiable. Trades considered

    Located in western North Carolina

    Thanks for your reply, Adam. Unfortunately, I'm a committed D neck guy. I'm looking for an alternate to my main bass, and I don't think I want to have to readjust anytime I go between it and whatever the alternate becomes? Cheers!

    Bass sounds great. Why not just get the neck conversion?

    Update:
    Put this old gal in the shop. Tuners are getting upgraded, getting a new nut and bridge, and some edge work done. Played her all weekend and she sounds great!
