This ca. 1970s Meisel 3/4 laminated bass came as a trade-in with a weird frankenstein neck that was thrown together as an early effort by a local doublebass luthier. I had Jeff Sahs and Josh Tharp install a much more useable salvage neck with a new German sourced African ebony fingerboard. This german plywood bass has a nice solid sound and feel along with a clean bill of health. Gold plated halfplate tuners, Ebonized tailpiece, Graphite endpin, German maple bridge with added adjusters, Lightly applied lacquer finish, currently strung with D’Addario Helicore hybrid strings. Top length 42 5/8″, Upper bout width 19 3/8″, Middle bout width 15″, Lower bout width 26 3/8″, Depth at neck 7 5/8″, Depth at upper bout corner 8 1/4″, Lower bout depth 8 1/2″, String length 41 1/4″. A very robust sounding performance and touring bass. With cover.

Price: $2,650
