    I've decided to sell my bass, though she's been (somewhat) loyal, I've found another bass that would suit me better. It's thought to be about 20 years old, it was regraduated by Aaron Reiley in Grand Rapids, MI, and has had all the work done on it by Tom Wolf in the Plains, VA. It's a massive instrument, and while it's classified as a large 3/4 size, I think it's more of a larger 7/8 based on size alone. Here are some measurements.

    String length: 41" 1/4
    "waist" (middle of c-bouts): 14" 3/8
    Length of back: 45"
    Upper bout length: 20"
    Upper bout depth: 8" 1/2
    Lower bout length: 22" 1/4
    Lower bout depth: 9" 1/2

    It's an incredibly good orchestral bass, deep and boomy, really shakes the rafters. I've had several modifications done to it over the four years of my possession. This includes several repairs by Tom Wolf, maple bridge adjusters, a solid ebony Onyx endpin, Pecanic tailpiece wire, new tailpiece (ebony), dots inlaid in the fingerboard, B-extension (done by Aaron Reiley), and angled endpin drilled. I really want her to find a new owner that'll care for her as much as I did.
    Selling my baby, large 3/4 fully carved Gofriller copy. No tags inside, but estimated to be about 20 years old. Regraduated top done by Aaron Reiley, as well as many small repairs done by Tom Wolf. It's a massive instrument, super deep, and is an orchestral bass if you've ever played one.

    PM for more information or if you want to try it out! Thanks for looking!
