2009 Upton Standard Laminate Gamba corners, THICK solo extended fingerboard (about 3/4" at the sides), adjustable bridge, Super Endpin Ball, thick padded Bobelock case (1yr old), strung w/ Helicore Hybrid lights (1 month old) the bass responds better to less tension. Perfect first bass or for NYC professional not wanting to haul their A-game through public transit, also for any Northeast players looking for something to bear the cold. I've had this bass up for sale several times already before deciding against parting with it. Set up to play like butter. Sounds and feels great. I don't even know if Upton is still making these but they're $2.7k plus strings, case, adjustable bridge and solo extension upgrade, not to mention a 10 week wait. Located in the Hudson Valley, NY- $2k Link to pics: http://s605.photobucket.com/albums/tt135/vince_p9/Upton/ The fingerboard is a little gunked up in the photos, will be cleaned. Also, as you may or may not be able to tell, the neck heel has been re finished w/ spirit varnish due to an incident involving denatured alcohol whilst cleaning the fingerboard (ironically). Also, please note these photos are from a while back and the sale does not include the Full Circle, carbon tailpiece, or Spirocore strings as pictured. The bass is currently strung w/ Helicore Hybrid Lights and an ebony tailpiece, no pickup included.
