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 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.
Played in but like new – please call and speak to its builder Eric
about this very special instrument.
