Framus Triumph Upright Electric Bass. Crafted by Framus Germany in the 1950's less than 200 made globally & these are now collectors items. This has been in my private collection for over 10 years.

The bass plays beautifully, has a big sound and is a real head turner. Fits on stage where a double bass won't & is very easy to lug.

Has had a head stock repair at some point in it's life, and the pickup has been moved slightly.

It is in original condition, it's around 60 years old. Nowdays we would describe this as a relic, or road worn instrument. This one however was not aged in a factory.

Has the original stand, plus a soft case & a display stand as well. This is best picked up or depending on where you are I will deliver at no charge.

Perhaps the only one in NZ.

I'm sure the Trade Me 'experts' will correct me if I'm wrong. And also supply heaps of other info such as who made it when etc...

Happy to answer questions, viewing & test drives by appointment. This is a very unique instrument that still plays and sounds as good as the day it was made.

Has some history which I will happily supply to the owner.

Oh, and her name is Nellie.
