Carruthers Electric Upright Bass
This bass is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-06-01)
Price : US $1,000.
Here is a bass that an acoustic player and an electric player can appreciate. It's made
by Carruthers of Venice,CA. The bass has a 41.25 inch scale which is about the same as
most 3/4 acoustics. I have found that this makes switching from an acoustic to this bass
an easier transition to play in tune than more convenient 35'' scale basses on tripods. It
has a body arm to help position it because of the lack of a body. The instrument has a
very good bowed tone and an arched ebony fingerboard that has the appearance of rosewood.
The body is solid alder and gives the instrument a dark tone. The neck is detachable and the
company offers a flight case for this purpose. I'm also selling a case separately by A & S on ebay
that accommodates the bass for flight without disassembling it. The case will be
sold with this bass at no charge if this bass sells first. The body has a few dings but all
in all the bass is in very good condition. The pickup/preamp circuitry is active with volume and
boost/cut treble and bass pots. It also comes with a stand, case(with a pocket for the body arm),
a wheel which I the padded case altered to accommodate and a case for the end pin shaft.
Buyer agrees to pay for all shipping cost. If the A & S sells before this bass, I will
lower the shipping cost.
