Hi there, up for consideration is a 1992 Clevinger Deluxe 4 string Electric Upright Bass. If you know EUB's, you know Clevinger is as good as it gets and this is a great example of a Clevinger Bass.

    This bass is fresh from the Clevinger factory where it received a new bridge and electronics, a new tailpiece, a thumb position arm rest and a new leg. It also had the fingerboard leveled. Wood and finish are all original. The work order is in the photo list. Fresh D'addario Helicore Medium strings were put on it at this time, at Martin Clevinger's recommendation and they sound great.

    This is now a stunning instrument, a 25 year old Clevinger with brand new electronics to modern specs. The fingerboard is flawless, every note is clear with great sustain and the action can go as low as you want. The wiring is Martin Clevinger's current design, a very high output passive system with a Volume, Bass boost/cut and Treble boost/cut. This bass will do any sound you want; warm, woody, punchy, deep, bright, it's all there with no feedback, by far the best tone I have ever heard from an electric upright bass. Neck is straight and has an Eb heel.

    Overall, this is about as good as you can get without buying a new one for $4.5k. There are no mechanical issues of any kind, no cracks and no repaired cracks. The finish is original, there are some scratches here and there. The only major cosmetic blemishes on the bass are several screw holes and a mark, all near the bridge where an old mod was removed. I have included a pic.

    This sale includes the bass, the body extension bar, the thumb position arm rest and a gig bag. The body bar and thumb rest are both removable. Item will ship ground, securely packed, but local pickup and testing in Chicago is also welcomed. Sorry, shipping to the USA lower 48 states only, no international sales. s-l1600. 4. 5. 8. 9. 92. s-l1600. s-l1600. s-l1600. 2. s-l1600 (1)222. 2. s-l1600. 4. 5. 8. 9. 92. s-l1600. s-l1600. s-l1600. s-l1600 (1)222. s-l1600.
