    This is an upton standard bass with a solo extended fingerboard. I got it recently and decided I want to stick to my plan and get a 7/8ths shen. Bass sounds and feels great. Built in 2013. Comes with Hellicore hybrid strings and an upton standard gig bag.

    Will drive an hour and a half to deliver or for an extra $200 I'll drive up to 500 miles.

    I recently heard Sam play this bass in New Orleans. The bass is terrific -- and so is Sam!

    Hybrid bass. Carved top Plywood back and sides. The same bass today from upton comes with no solo scoop. This I think is more customized than whats being sold as a standard today but thats just what I was told when I bought it. The solo fingerboard is the only upgrade I can see...

    Sound clips available upon request and in private message. I have a quick demo video I made for someone else but it doesn't feature the best playing.
