I have a 7/8 size Guarnerius design bass circa 1997 for sale or for trade. It has sloping shoulders with a large lower bout, and a 41.25" string length. I just had a new bridge put on, and all cracks are sealed. It also has individual heavy brass machines and the endpin sold by Cincinatti Bass Cellars. It has a huge warm sound, and in my opinion is better suited to bowing than pizz, which is the reason I'd like to trade. I'd be looking for an older 3/4 or 7/8 carved bass, i.e. a Juzek.
