    Roth Hybrid 5/8 bass 1971. Just got it back from the bass doctor and new bridge installed, new tailgate, fingerboard dressed, and top cracks cleated. This is a fun smaller bass that I was planning to use as a piccolo bass but got an Ergo instead for that. Nice focused sound with the amount of bottom you would expect from a smaller bass. Comes with bag that fits it like a glove.

    UB 18
    LB 24
    SL 39
    Rib Depth 7.5

    This bass has two issues. The first is the lower bout on the back has delamination around the edges. It has been glued and fixed but the edges were not replaced. The second is an older scroll repair that is not the most elegant but is solid. My luthier checked out both and said they are holding fine. Let me know if you have questions or need more information. Free Shipping: ship via Greyhound Package Express to terminal.

    We'll be arriving on the 13th and leaving on the 18th.

    What do you have the bass strung with currently?

    Hi Rick,

    Not 100% sure on the current strings but they are older with purple silks at both ends. Took a second look and they appear to be dominants I think..

    $1250 includes shipping to Greyhound terminal. Just strung the bass up with Zyex lights and it really opened up. Will record some audio samples this weekend.

  10. Can you take some pictures of the issues? Very hard to see in the pics.

    The scroll repair in the pic shows the 2 dowels that were installed and that is the extent of that repair. I'll get some pics of the delamination around the edge on the back. Thanks for the question.

    Recorded with ATM 35PRO mic 1/2 inch from the top under the bridge w/ no EQ. Bass is currently strung with Zyex lights and the string height is low.
