    This bass has served me well since I purchased it from Upton Bass in February of 2012. This is how Upton described it then: "This is a very solidly German built instrument assembled and finished by William de Sola in Wilton, Connecticut. Fully carved wide-grain Spruce top with well-flamed maple ribs and canted back. All of the components are of the highest quality. Great tone and clarity, booming resonance with a compact easily-ported size. Has the feel of an early small-shop Juzek with none of the problems!"

    This was Wil DeSola's personal bass before he sold it to me (via consignment at Upton). 40 1/2" string length and slightly smaller body than most 3/4 basses-an 11/16?

    I have added bumpers and 6 years of gigging mojo since the photos were taken.

    Fishman Full Circle and quality Mooradian gig bag included. Currently strung with Evah Pirazzi E-A-D, and Oliv G. Please PM me for details on the purchase. $4,500

    If this wasn't so far away, and I wasn't trying to save for another bass right now I would jump on this.
