Get an enviable, vintage German bass for the cost (or less) of a boring new bass! In very good condition for its age, this Framus fully carved bass dates from ca. 1970. Well made and solid! Nickel plated tuning machines, dense ebony fingerboard, adjustable bridge, new endpin. It evidences minor wear for its age, including a couple of well-repaired top cracks in the lower bout. No sound post or bass bar cracks. There is a small, repaired chip (see photos) in the side of the neck that appears to be the result of the fingerboard having been replaced at one point. This is not uncommon, and does not compromise the integrity of the neck. Inlaid position markers. Slender neck is really easy to play.
