If you're anywhere near New York you can steal these things and leave a
tip. Perry Ritter, the repairman on West 55th, has a 1956-vintage Centered
Tone in A for $600. Nobody in New York, he told me, wants Selmers: this is
still a Buffet town. I'd buy it, but I'm looking at his bass, an old but
in great shape Bundy, for the same price.
