Ive been playing an Upton Romanian Carcassi model recently. 46 body 8 3/4 deep Lower bout 25 ½ C bout 16 Shoulders20 3/8 Scale 41 ½ Overstand 1 1/16 The Short Version: This is a big bass notwithstanding medium-sized shoulders. Its well-made and sounds good. The bowed sound is very even throughout; I hope that the low E develops more volume for jazz. Its a very solid instrument but not overbuilt pretty light, in fact. I like the setup and dislike the antiquing. The Uptons are great (but theyd better be great because I am their lawyer).
