I wanted to get some input from everyone else here on this. I have an Upton Standard Hybrid (round back) that I really like, I believe it was made in 2011. I am not the original owner. The bass was a customer return to Upton and had a soundpost crack in the top from being strung up without the post in place. The bass has made a couple of return trips to the Upton shop over it's life to have patches installed on both the top and back to keep it from sinking on the treble side of the top. It was stable for about a year. Now, in the past few months, it's back to sinking like the Titanic. It's gotten bad enough I've had to retire it essentially; I've run out of room to raise the bridge anymore. I used to live in Boston so it made getting things fixed pretty easy. Now I live in Texas. Not so much. So I'm torn... wether I should get the bass repaired again, or just order a new one. I don't think the top on this one will ever be right, so I'd think I'm looking at a new top. New top plus shipping vs just ordering a new bass (an unknown quantity). Thoughts?
