Fully Carved Eberhard Meinel Double Bass 3/4 £1400
Flitwick, Bedfordshire

Recommended Posts

£1400 ono. Photos HERE

Unsure of exact age but it is older than 1990 as you can see from the label (Made in German Democratic Republic) and showing a few signs of 30+ years playing life.

Neck was repaired by Thwaites three years ago, they did a fantastic job and also fitted the Fishman Full Circle pickup at the same time as a set-up.

Strings are spiro E and A with a mixed gut core D and G - can't remember exact brands but perhaps a string silk aficionado will be able to shed some light on that. I think I have some other strings that I will throw in too, possibly the spiro D and G but I will need to double-check.

Comes with a decent padded soft case that is a bit worn in places but does the job.

Collection only from Flitwick, Bedfordshire. You're welcome to come and test - feel free to bring an amp if you would like to hear it plugged in as I'm currently without.

Very much like mine, same label.

I bought mine from a good friend, and it was estimated to be 1960s, much like meself!

Beautiful tone and volume. Mine has 108cm vibrating string length so verging on 4/4. 

I love mine to this day, so I imagine someone will be very happy getting yours. Glwts!
