Hello

I have another ukulele/bass for sale that I recently have finished.

514mm (20.2 inch) scale acoustic bass. With Bay laurel top, sides and back. Mahogany neck, radiused ebony fingerboard. Inlaid with bone and soapstone. Bone nut, ebony saddle. Antiqued. French polish finish. No pickup installed...

1300 plus shipping... But I'd like to find a owner for this so I'm open to reasonable offers :)

Great looking instrument! But I have to say that lack of a pickup on a ubass seems like an odd choice, especially on this end of the market. Is there really enough acoustic volume to keep up with other instruments? The factory models I've tried that was definitely not the case.

Definitely quite. But loud enough to enjoy on the porch. I can install some electronics if needed.
