Vintage American Standard upright bass made in 1937, lefty converted. Bass bar has been moved to the other side of the top so it is a true lefty bass now. Very rich complex sounding bass, the years have been kind to it! It's in excellent shape, ready to record and gig with. Needs nothing !

We have more than 25 Upright Basses ready to play in our store at all times, and LOTS more in boxes in the warehouse. Many of our basses are vintage and collectible models from Kay basses to German and Czech turn of the Century.

Wouldn't it be wise to buy from a real bass shop?
