    Radically reduced to $800 -- I need the space it occupies - Upton Hawkes plywood. Discontinued model. All seams are tight. No rattles. I'm using it to experiment with strings. Sporting Evah Pirazzi strings at the moment, Revolution Solo pickup and 'docking station' from Gollihur and padded gig bag. Well abused for 14 years with nicks and dings, chewed up bridge and violin corner damage. Hauled in a Honda Accord and it shows. Can be played as is if you're not particular about visuals. Will need to see your luthier if you want to make it somewhat presentable. Pickup in Forth Worth area. It really does sound good. Stickers/decals have been removed.

    Not interested, just wanted to say how Great Upton Hawkes basses are. I own a plywood 07 Hawkes and they are great basses for the money. Big sound, easy to play, nice broad shoulders, and better sounding then any other plywood out there.
    Who ever jumps on this is going to be very happy. GLWTS
