This is a sturdy, well set up, good-sounding used Christopher 102Q 1/4 size bass featuring a maple bridge with adjusters, genuine ebony fingerboard with inlaid position markers, individual brass tuning machines, and adjustable endpin with rubber stopper. Set up and adjusted for accuracy and ease of playing right in our workshop! Good, used set of quality strings installed. It's also very shiny. Already drilled for the angled endpin. Includes original Christopher gig bag/cover.
In very good condition, this bass has been regularly maintained and has been inspected before being put up for sale. No cracks, major damage or prior repairs. Some minor edge dings and varnish chips have been touched up in our workshop.
The Christopher 102 is highly regarded as a well-made and very good-sounding laminated bass. Suitable for a growing child bassist, or adult who just wants a smaller instrument. You'd be surprised how often adults choose 1/4 and 1/2 size basses for their own playing!
