    Price:
    $5500
    Strings:
    4
    Location:
    North Carolina
    Was selling this for another purchase, but family circumstances have changed. For the better, but also for the pricier. Now it’s all about the cash. This would be the perfect bass for an advanced student or working pro needing a solid backup.

    Lemur Venice
    41 and 5/8” scale
    Extended solo fingerboard (brand new board)
    C extension (gated)
    Upgraded rosewood tuners
    Pecanic compensated Cocobolo tailpiece
    Maple position inlays

    Appraised at $9500 (papers included)

    Bought this last fall at the Bass Violin Shop in Greensboro, NC

    They did all the upgrading and C extension.

    Let me see what I can scare up. I’ll be bringing it with me to Winchester, VA for the Bass Coalition meet up, if that brings it closer to you.

    Here is a video I made testing out different strings when I first bought it, prior to the upgrades. I believe the order is Belcantos, Spiro Solo at solo pitch, Spiro solo at orchestra pitch, Kaplan solo at orchestra pitch, and then at Solo pitch.

    It’s a two day bass workshop at Shenandoah Conservatory. Pretty killin. Donovan Stokes is the guy in charge, and he’s a real treat to hear and learn from!

    C’mon, Sam. I’m itching for a New Orleans road trip! If you run into Gene Black or Todd Duke, give my regards!
