Selling my 6 months old Musser M55G vibes :(
Dear friends vibists,
unfortunately (!), I have decided to sell my brand new M55G. I bought it last november, it came to my house straight from the Musser factory.
I am a first year graduate music student in NY. As from this summer I am not sure whether I will be able to continue my studies because it is possible that I will not get my funding and scholarships renewed (I have 3 at the moment). We all know that these are tough times for the arts....
Anyway, in an attempt to sum up the money that I need to be here for the next semester and complete my degree, I have decided to sell my beautiful M55G. Also, in the case I fail to sum up the money I need for the fees, and decide to move back to Europe, I wouldn't want to take it with me; the taxes, cost of shipping and also changing the motor (to european standards), will cost me too much.
The instrument sounds amazing and is in an excellent condition (anyone interested is welcome to pass by and play it). It also has real gold colored bars. Many of you will have noticed that a lot of Musser instruments came out the last few years with orange looking bars. Well mine has actually beautiful gold colored bars.
I have the cover, the motor (tried it once to make sure it works but I don't use it), the spares for the motors, the receipt and all the paperwork that came with it. Also, I need to mention that it never left my room.
Maybe it's the fact that it is mine, but I really think that this one sounds better than an average M55G. But... as I said, maybe the fact that it's my instrument makes it sound, vibrate, better to my ears :)
It's been used for under 6 months ( less than 3 days per week/I practice at school 4 days a week), so I think it would be fair to ask around $4,000 as it is brand new and it is for a good cause. It goes for $5,150 now at Steve Weiss.
Anyone interested please write back!
All the very best,
