    I'm sad to be putting my Upton bass on the market but priorities have changed and I no longer need this magnitude of an instrument. It's a fully carved Bohemian model with syc (maple) on flat back & sides. 41.5 string length. Eb neck. C-extension. Ribs are 8" to 6.25 with canted flat back. Solo extension fingerboard. Removable / adjustable neck.

    I've used this bass in a variety of settings. It's been used playing classical, bluegrass, jazz, and everything in between. It was in solo tuning for about a year and sounded great. Currently has full set of heliocore hybrid lights. My favorite choice of strings on this bass, I’ve tried many different combinations. The bass sounds great both pizz and arco. No issues! I just don't need a bass like this anymore and I could use the extra money. Deserves to go to a good home and played regularly. Comes with a deluxe blue Mooradian case and a copper realist pickup. Please email for questions or come over and play her. I'm located in Nashville, TN. Make me an offer.

    I’m not an arco player, but here’s what it sounds like with a bow:
