Subj: Contra bass for sale
Date: Sat, 20 Sep 1997 23:59:40 -0400
I got a call from a party in New York just yesterday who offered
to sell me an E-flat contrabass (Selmer) made in the 1920s. It is
rare in that it is made out of grenadilla wood, not rosewood.
I was not interested in the item but told him I'd mention it on
the list. Cost is $4,000. If you have any interest at all,
contact me privately and I'll tell you who to call.
