Fantastic bow you can't find these anywhere that I can tell
round stick, nice and straight, w/nice arch,
weight not sure around 140 grams,
large tip , smallish frog ( i have a small hand)very comfortable to hold and control
measures 27 1/2 inches.
The very tiny tip of the Ivory that wraps around to the front of the tip is missing.
This bow makes the bass boom and speak very articulately. I had an old Italian bass, the combination was fantastic
Balance point just a little more than 1/3 of the way down the stick from the frog end
needs a rehair I have not used it in a long time.
I will ship it to you for a trial 2 week period, fully refundable, you pay shipping, that's not refundable and you must put the money in escrow with my law firm here in richmond va. I did the same when I sold my bass for $30,000.00. They hold the money till you say to release it to me or I tell them I have the bow back and they send the money back to you( i will pay them.)
I will send more pictures if you email me
