    I have a Stentor 1950 double bass which I’m looking to sell. I’ve had it for 12 years but it rarely gets played and it’s now more of a bulky ornament taking up space.

    My wife paid £300 for it but looking online, used basses of this type are up for about £800/£900.

    It would include bow, case and stand. Any ideas what I could realistically sell this for?

    You answered your own question, didn't you?

    From what I can see, the new Stentor 1950 goes for $1750 retail, online. It's advertised as a solid-top student bass with a small body. That's a low price for a hybrid (solid top, plywood back and sides), indicating that it's not particularly great. No idea where it's made.

    If you see used ones being advertised for 800/900 pounds, are they selling?
