Make your UB Double Bass a left handed bass, available on any UB bass for our flat fee of $500. Every element of the bass will be made truly for a left handed upright bass player. Besides the obvious changes such as strings, bass bridge and nut orientation, the modifications to a true lefty model UB double bass include:
- Bass bar and soundpost are reversed
- Fingerboard arch is directed to the left handed player as we would do with a typical right handed bass.
- Tuners are reversed in a direct mirror of a right handed bass
- Endpin key is reversed
- For our advanced carved basses, our proprietary graduation patterns are inverted in a mirror-image of the graduation patterns we use for a right handed player. Where else can you get a fully carved upright bass truly made as a lefty?
Of utmost notability is that Upton Bass has setup dozens of left handed basses. We aren’t a shop that just says, “Yeah, we’ll do it.” We know what we’re doing and we’ve done it before. Our head setup luthier is a Southpaw himself, and understands what you are looking for in a lefty bass.
