Wow.  How much are they asking?  Or did you buy it?  I saw a Gibson Mandobass on shopgoodwill.com at a store in Michigan last year.  I bought and returned a Kalamazoo mandocello many years ago, and owned a Kalamazoo Mandola for a couple years, but never saw a Kalamazoo mandobass.

It's on consignment, he's thinking of asking about $4500, will go up later today with the final price.  http://www.bedfordbanjoshop.com/  It's in great condition, one tuner needs replacing if anyone has one, open gear.

That mandobass at Goodwill last year was a good deal after the flurry of auction bids.

There is no better guy in the banjo world to do business with than Mike. He's a real prince. Very knowlegable and very fair.
