    Hi, I'm listing this again here after a local buyer backed out after putting a deposit down.

    I have a hybrid upton brescian bass located in Toronto Ontario Canada. this bass was the 3rd Brescian built. I absolutely love this bass but after a shoulder injury I had I need a smaller bass.

    This bass has the antique tuner upgrade, the preserve saddle upgrade and Gary at the time put on the nicer slightly more flamed ply back and sides as well as used the English sycamore neck.

    I am hoping to sell this in and around Canada so I'm not needing to deal with international shipping. If someone is interested in this in the states I do have a free kolstein unistrap flight case that you could fly it home in.

    Bass is currently strung with spiro ea mittle and dg weich.

    The pictures are of the actual bass, the bass used to be pictured on the upton website.

    Bass includes a choice of a realist or underwood pick up, 2 gig bags 1 a mooradian and 1 unknown bag.

    Asking $6200 Canadian (our dollar is .91c USA) right now.

    Bump, I would consider trading for a Czech ease with flight case and some extra cash.

    Pat I have just been trying to record the upton tonight, my audio interface seems to not be working. If anyone is really interested in hearing it pm me and we can set up a Skype session where you can hear the bass.

    Bump, I can also meet along the southern Ontario border at many locations, if this doesn't sell by March I'm going to use uptons great trade in policy. A good chance to get a brescian at a fraction of the cost.

    Thanks for the kind words about the bass

    here is a clip, sorry about the poor intonation at a few parts, I have only played this bass a handful of times since my shoulder injury and have been playing my smaller basses. This bass is just too big for me to really get around on like I need to anymore.

    The bass is currently strung with Spiro med e+a and weich d g with a 50/50 arco/pizz set up

    it was recorded in my 8x10 practice room with a roland cd-e2 using the internal mic
