1979 Engelhardt C-1 3/4 Upright Acoustic Bass

Vintage Engelhardt American Made Bass in fantastic condition. Sounds great too, we put a new bridge, endpin and strings on it, new soundpost in it - and it opened up to a rich sounding vintage plywood bass. It's 32 years old now so has aged enough to make a difference in the tone.

The finish is very well preserved too, been kept at home all its life and not dragged around and dinged up!
Features are:
  • Superior Despiau French Adjustable Bridge
  • Fresh set of Spirocore Medium Strings
  • New Christopher Endpin w/screw-on plug
  • Fingerboard dressed smoothed/shaped for low action
  • Original Engelhardt Rock Maple Fingerboard
  • Original Engelhardt Tailpiece
  • New soundpost cut and installed

    Shipping will include $80 credit off actual cost to get it to you.
