    Price:
    $2950
    Strings:
    4
    Location:
    Colorado
    For sale is a very lightly used 3/4 size 2009 Upton Hybrid Standard with laminated sides and back (flatback upgrade), and solid top. IMG_7943.JPG IMG_7944.JPG IMG_7945.JPG IMG_7946.JPG It's strung with a fresh set of TI Spirocores, and includes the Upton Revolution pick-up, Upton French bow and bow case, and a very nice, thick padded Mooradian bass bag in very good condition. This bass just doesn't get played; I'm focused on electric bass. I'm the original owner and this was a custom build. There is one small nick in the upper left bout (see photo). Colorado local pick up only.

    I'll also include a high quality bass transport wheel and an old but decent set of Evahs with this package.

    Is this a deluxe top, by chance?

    I don’t believe so.

    Do you have a recording of the bass? Or a video perhaps? Thanks.

    I don’t, sorry. You could try it out yourself if you’re local!

    Thanks for the offer. I'm in Washington State. I have some friends in Erie, CO. But, plans to visit them are not determined yet.

    Well let me know if you’re in the area. We were in Wenatchee for a few years...and I’m part Oregon Duck.

    Oh man wish I knew that last week - I live in Grand Junction, was just over there! May try to come over in a week or so if you still have the bass for sale.

    Hi, maybe you be interested. You are now interested in electric bass but have this upright. I am interested in uprights, but have a really beautiful custom made fretless electric I no longer play. It really is amazing. Let's think about a trade! Happy thanksgiving! Im in Seattle. Just a thought.

    Thanks for the interest. I’m not really looking for trades, but vintage Fender, Olinto, Sadowsky, Modulus, and Lull would be at the top of my wishlist if I were to consider a trade. Feel free to PM me with pics/info on your electric, but it’s unlikely that I’d go for a fretless.

    Hi

    Thanks

    Oh yeah, I should add that the buyer didn't want the bow and bow case, so I'll be listing that separately in the near future...
