    Up for grabs is my 2010 Upton Standard Hybrid, solid spruce top with poplar laminate ribs and flatback. Upton doesn't currently offer upgrades in their Standard line (you'd have to upgrade to a $3750-base price Bohemian to get the benefits of a flatback), but they were more flexible in the past, so this instrument was commissioned with a flatback and extended solo fingerboard. It's in beautiful cosmetic shape, with essentially no dings or beauty-marks.

    The bass has had extensive recent setup work by Berkeley's Pat McCarthy, who planed the fingerboard, reworked bridge and soundpost, and reglued a small top seam. It's currently strung with Velvet Garbos, but successfully wore Evah mediums in a previous orchestral incarnation. Nice big sound, plays like butter.

    The bass comes with a Bobelock bag in great condition and has an Upton Revolution Solo pickup. It lives just west of Santa Rosa CA.

    Thanks for looking - please PM me for better pictures or more information. No problem to arrange shipping, either FedEx freight or a "white glove" personal delivery service. DSC00139.JPG
