Christopher Removable Neck Upright Bass "Concert Series"
This Christopher Removable neck Upright Bass is perfect for the bassist who needs great tone and volume combined with easy transport. Nothing replaces the big beautiful sound of our beloved stringed bass. That’s why we love them but we all know that there is a price for this love affair, mainly transporting your BIG lovable friend. Example: The worry of a broken neck, the space it takes up, shipping costs etc.. Well “Christopher” has come up with a great solution for this. The removable neck eliminates any possibility of a broken neck, makes it a much more manageable size and takes up a lot less space and if you have to ship it, greatly reduces shipping costs. This Christopher Removable neck Upright Bass is the best of both worlds. The neck locking mechanism has gone through an evolution of extensive testing and is solid and dependable. It’s as strong or better than a fixed neck. We've been timing the dismantling process here in the store and it is 5 minutes or less.
This removable neck Upright Bass is a new and welcome addition to Christopher's "Concert" Series for obvious reasons. Same Big beautiful warm sound.

**IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTES:
$99 shipping to Qualified Commercial addresses not more than 600 miles or so from our shop in Pasadena, CA.
A Qualified* Commercial Address is defined as a business address in an area that is incorporated or “Zoned” Commercial and where a large truck has “easy access” (a shipping & receiving dock or a place that is directly adjacent to an entrance not requiring any additional handling, i.e.; stairs or anything past the front door.
There are additional handling charges for those and other services). When choosing the “Commercial Address” option below be sure to include the name of the Company in the shipping address in the checkout process.
$99 Shipping to “Qualified* Commercial Address” requires the address to be located within 30 minutes, or so, of a major city, on major U.S. shipping arteries and not more than 600 miles or so from our shop in Pasadena Ca.
Shipping rates can vary greatly depending on where you live. More remote commercial shipping addresses on the East Coast, New England, New York, New Jersey as well as Florida or the upper Midwestern States such as North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, for example, require additional shipping charges usually running between $35 and $85, but in the most crowded or remote areas can add on up to $140. These types of shipping destinations are more expensive to ship to from us here in California.
The customer will need to make up the difference between the initial $99 shipping and the actual shipping costs. In any case, FMI will contact you if there is additional shipping due.
Shipping to a residential address is $45 more to any State as it takes special handling by the freight line.
