Description: Double Bass (Contrabass) - New, Unfinished Flame-Top Busetto Double Bass
Laminated 3/4 Busetto: Lightly figured maple on the sides, back and top. The bass as-is has no hardware, no fingerboard and of course, no finish. The bass is brand new and DEEPLY discounted: $999 + shipping as-is.
The bass was custom-built for my shop (Norton Customs) by Concord International, makers of the revered Christopher line of basses. The figuring in the veneer is too mild for the particular application, so it needs to go. **Figuring becomes more apparent with finish.** Again, your chance to save on a top-quality bass in-the-white.
I can also install a fingerboard and set up the bass with steel strings if you prefer (still no finish) for $1699 + shipping.
