  2. Located in Merrimack, NH USA, I have a 3/4 size Englehardt Bass that I would like to give away to someone who can pick it up locally, as I will not be shipping it. I have had this bass for quite a long time, and intended to repair it, but do not have the time to do so. The neck was broken when a student tripped over it, as I understand. I glued the broken pieces back together, but more work or neck graft/replacement is needed. Various parts (tuners, tailpiece, endpin etc) were removed prior to my getting it; I have almost all the replacement parts needed, except the endpin, and will include them with the bass. Let me know! Again, I won't be able to ship this item - Sorry! Thanks!!
  3. Hi Everyone, The Strad Magazines are no longer available. Thanks!
  4. Hello, I am down-sizing, and want to give away all my Strad Magazines. Except for the months of March, April, and May of 2003, and January of 2004, I have all the Strad Magazines for the years 1998 through 2017 (19 years!), including (to the best of my knowledge) any and all posters that came with them. I also have 9 - 10 "loose" Strad magazines with various dates (1990's and the 2018 Jan Strad). I need to move the whole lot in one go, so I don't plan to dispense with individual years or issues. I live in New Hampshire, not too far from the Boston area, and will be glad to hand these over to whomever wants these magazines. I also would be willing to bring them to you if you are located within a "reasonable" distance. Thanks! Ed Fleming Merrimack, NH
