: My father recently bought an Epiphone B-5 upright bass. He is wanting to know some history on it and a possible value. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I SAW THAT ELDERLY INSTRUMENTS JUST SOLD A B-5 FOR $3500, I'M SELLING A B-4 ON E-BAY NOW, STARTING BID $1500. I HOPE TO GET $2000.
THE B4 & 5 WERE MADE BETWEEN 1948 TO 1952 THE LAST YEARS FOR THEM,HAS A SOLID SPRUCE CARVED TOP, FLAMED MAPLE LAMINATE SIDES & BACK, BRAZILLIAN ROSEWOOD FRETBOARD, B5 HAS MORE ENSCRIPTION ON THE TUNERS& MORE STRIPING ON THE BACK TRIM. THIS IS A VERY SOUGHT AFTER BASS, I HOPE THIS HELPS
