Upton Bass Bohemian Model Bass Viol 2013 Opus 118
Here’s a fine example of what can be built using the modest Bohemian model as a jumping off point. A fully carved flatback concert bass with many design tweaks that result in an amazing player with an elegant feel and a warm, clear and distinct voice.
Deluxe wide grain spruce top. Flat back and sides of English Sycamore. One piece lightweight, quarter-sawn English Sycamore neck. Deep ribs (8″) with a canted back (to 6.25″ at cant). Karr curvature to flat back with slim D neck and solo extension. Very playable and comfortable with a large bass bin. Antiqued tuners, ebony rib bumpers. Fishman Full Circle.
