    I have solo Permanents GDA (AEB) that are very lightly used. $75. I can throw in Xyex solo E or something else from the draw for another $20.

  2. I may jump on these if I lock down the $150 Tyrolean three-string I'm angling on. Just FYI...

    How are those Kaplan Solos treating you?

    I hold them for you and let you know if anything happens. They were replaced by the Kaplans's on my own converted three string - the bass seems much happier and warmer (I play them tuned down to orchestra pitch)

    Here's the thread on that conversion (note Ken Smith's snarky remarks): duh... 3-string restoration photos

    Nick's work is idiosyncratic, but the bass has matured beautifully and I would put it up against any Italian bass in the $40-50K range. (By the way, you beat me-- I paid $300 for mine)


    PS: If I can convince the better half, I may buy back the Swanson "gullwing" (attached), with the idea of turning it into a five string. Is that any sort of project you might like to tackle? Probably not till later in the spring, but just asking.

    Stay warm.

  4. Honestly, I'd love to hang with you and get my hands on that thing, but I'd be a liar if I claimed I could promise I could improve it. It's just so weird.

    I'll be in touch about the Permanents, hopefully by the end of the week. Thanks much.
