|| I have for sale my German Double Bass--Two piece flat back of maple. Spruce table. Mid red brown varnish. Handsome looking bass. Not great cosmetically. (Well-it is old!) Owned by myself for many years. Bought from a pro orchestra player. Selling due to my old age--now playing EUB. The double bass is circa from 1880's. Written valuation in 2006 between £4500 to £5000. Has had repairs in the past. Has inlaid position dots on side of F/B and inlays for thumb position. Quality tuning machine heads. Well fitted bridge. Plays very well for both pizz and arco. A good sounding bass. Scale length 43 1/4". Comes with quality padded 'Mooradian' case cover. Would sell or exchange (Or part exchange depending what you have) for Acoustic Archtop Guitar.
