Wonderful old instrument owned by well known Kiwi Bassist. Set up for jazz with fairly low action
Hugely powerful sound 
Heaps of character here
would suit both jazz and orchestral player
Like all instruments of this age the instrument has had some repairs done. Bass is in sound condition and very playable

needs a small amount of work on fingerboard to rectify buzz but that can be negotiated
this is a "chance of a lifetime investment"  instrument it is rare to get one of this quality pop up in NZ
