With classic automobiles, you might call this a Retro Rod…vintage body with a new engine underneath. This early 20th Century Mittenwald double bass is ready for the next 100 thanks to some creative thinking and collaboration between its new owner and Upton Bass!
Not long ago, this bass was cobbled together and overlooked, but had the bones of a classic. Bought for a relative song, its new owner invested in a new Upton removable/adjustable neck, C-Extension and new full setup with our thick solo fingerboard. Totally gone through, this is now a super-flexible and playable beauty, with all the magic of its tone, history and patina intact!
Sometimes your dream bass can be the best of old and new – a great example of what a good eye and our experience can deliver.
