Shen Mirecourt 200
Carved maple and spruce. 41 1/2" string length.
Soundwise, this is one of may favorite models from Shen. It has a large wide lower bout (27 3/4") and a narrow loping upper bout which gives great access to the upper part of the fingerboard. Having a thicker, fatter bottom end will maintain singing projecting upper register.
This bass is a second b because it has a repaired chip over the lower lock in the back. In my opinion, this is clearly cosmetic. I seek out basses with small cosmetic problems (see photo) so I can save my clients a ton of money while still getting great sound. If you can find another for sale for anywhere near 6 grand I'd be surprised!
