: ordred an 8850 plywood. comes in with nut cut, bridge cut, sound post fitted, ebony fingerboard on, and overall fit & finish checked. Comes with Rubner tuners. list is 2500, buying for about half new via net thru dealer. Does this sound like a good deal? Don't know what metal strings Mesiel puts on...anybody know? Overall does Meisel rate among better plywoods. I've read around the net without really hearing avoidance comments. I've never actually seen one "in the flesh". How does the neck feel, Rubner tuners?. Please comment
It's been a long time, but a school I taught in had several Meisel basses that my students were playing on. As far as plywood instruments go, I always thought they seemed to be a good value. I talked to someone a few months ago who was trying to sell an Englehardt (which I would never buy) for $1300. So this looks like - at least - a fair deal for you.
