OK. SO Here goes.
Orsi contrabass on ebay. Shipping out of china.
Guy sent me a bunch more pictures. I asked specifically for ones of the serial number, and the case, and one of the neck socket. Figured if it is legit, well, then I just got a contra for $2k. If not, well it was interesting to drool over the pictures. I'm posting the pix he sent me on photobucket as we speak, so that'll be up to see if you guys have seen those pictures on ebay before.
