Laubin #2312 grenadilla oboe for sale 
Asking $9,000
This oboe was purchased new in 2001 and was played full-time until 2005, and then only lightly played to maintain it after that.  It is in great condition, and I have been the sole owner of this instrument.  Serious inquiries only. bethany.a.slater@gmail.com
