I have an Engelhardt EC-1 3/4 bass for sale. $1100. It is a plywood bass, spruce on top, and Maple sides, back and neck. The neck and tailpiece are ebonized, meaning that the wood was painted black, which is very common among basses in this price range. It is a medium colored bass, not dark and not light. Dark gold, with red/brown shading around the edges.
I couldn't believe that I saw your post. Just recently I decided to sell my bass since I hardly use it anymore, and I didn't know if I was going to find anyone in Colorado.
If you are interested and want to see it, I live in the Denver area, and if you live in the same area you could either come to see the bass, or I could visit you to have you see it.
You can contact me either at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-278-6674 (it is probably easier to reach me by email.)
: I'm a guitar player who has always wanted to start playing upright bass. I'm in search of some direction on what to look for in a bass. I know I don't want some cheap Chinese bass. I want something with TONE that I can use to adapt to my many different styles of music. I'll primarily be playing Rockabilly, Traditional and Alt-Country and Bluegrass. I want to spend somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,200 to $1,5000.00. I'd prefer a darker stain to the wood. ebony fingerboard etc. I reside in Colorado. What can you tell me about ply vs/ carved tops? Is a used Kay the way to go? Anyone have something for sale////ket me know! ANY help you can give me will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
