  1. Stentor Messina for sale

    Very good point. I thought I'd done that. Photos on the way. Thanks.
  2. Stentor Messina for sale

    Bump. I'm open to reasonable offers on this.
  3. I bought this Bass from the Bristol violin shop about 12 years ago. The Messina was one of Stentor's high end instruments at the time. It's all hand carved with a spruce top, maple back and sides and ebony finger board. The Bass is very comfortable to play and It sounds great. It has the usual scuffs around the edges, which you would expect from a Bass that has been gigged for over 10 years. There is a repair from a split under one of the F holes which was professionally repaired around seven years ago and is still sound. otherwise this Bass is in great condition.

  4. Hatpeg tuners wanted.

    I bought it at auction last year, I'm currently restoring it. Looks to me like it had been sat somewhere in a unplayable state for a long long time. I think they stopped making 3 stringers around 1920/1930. I probably will end up putting some modern tuners on, maybe a set of bakers. But I think I'd like to try it as a 3 stringer for a while first.
  5. Hatpeg tuners wanted.

    Thanks for the advice Mart but unfortunately I need the whole tuner including the peg and the worm and gear. I'm converting a 3 string bass to a 4 string, I should have made that clear before. I'm hoping that someone out there might have done the same but upgraded to new tuners, and that they might have some old hat peg types lying around. Anyone?

  7. Hat peg tuners wanted.

    Does anybody out there have any old style hat peg tuners? I actually only need the one but a matching set would be great. they're for an old German Bass. Thanks.

  9. Belcanto C extension

    I've got a set of Belcantos with a C extension but I don't have an extension on my bass. I'm looking to swap the bottom C for a standard Belcanto E or sell for £45 posted. I bought the set 2nd hand and they had only been on a bass for about 6 weeks, so it's in very good condition, silks too.
