|This bass was consigned by the
daughter of the deceased owner. It has been some time since his
passing, and we are left with little knowledge of the basses history
beyond what we see. It came in with gut strings and I have done my set
up magic including a set of Thomastic Sprocore Orchestra strings which
will tell you what you need to know about the basses ability, which is
considerable. The price includes your preferred string, should it be
another. $8500 including a
rough bag and a decent older bow.
Body length - 46" lower bout - 26" upper bout- 19 1/2" body depth - 8 1/2" string length - 44" (1100mm) bridge height - 6.7"
Worst flaw; a missing corner:
This bass is long. Here it is next to a 7/8 Gofriller followed by a Wilfer 3/4:
