Dear all,

Picked this up in a trade recently (hope you don't mind me linking to your add Paul). Really nice instrument but having put a few hours into it I'm not sure it's for me. I already play double bass and just can't sense a musical setting where I would want something in the middle if you know what I mean!

Anyway, here are the details:

I've priced it to sell but am quite open to any trades on this one. Hit me up BC folks!

Cheers,

Abd

Tempting.  OTOH, it's flat-bridge, so using a bow would be severely limited.  Hm.

Shame it wasn't for you Andy.  GLWYS.

Yes, flat bridge and pretty flat fretboard - can't imagine bowing this would be possible.

My experience of an NS CRM5 5-string EUB is that the strings could not be bowed above 'fret' 5 due to the high action - you end up playing the intended string and the adjacent one. Unless the 5-fingerboard is designed to be significantly different radius and/or width to the 4-fingerboard, that might be a common problem.

Haha, I wondered if you'd spot this Paul! Actually I really like the bass but I just can't see me using it ahead of either bass guitar or double bass..... 

I'm not really an arco player but I would say def no bowing on this..
