Description

Fully laminated young Upton upright bass in great shape, played in and primed for decades of gigging. A plywood double bass stage warrior!

The bass was created with a few upgrades to our stock Bohemian build.  The first was a “7/8” body…so we adhered to the Bohemian building points, but built it on our Mittenwald rib assembly!  The second major upgrade was, as the bass was to have a lighter finish, the wood choice was upgraded to Birch.  Birch is a bit harder than our stock poplar choice and a bit creamier in color which would give a warmer hue to the amber varnish.  The laminated flat-back utilizes the same brace material and pattern as our solid wood flat-backs, so the bass has an elevated level of tone over a common laminated round-back.

Antiqued tuners and a full size (non-swooped) fingerboard give the bass an old world look with new world dependability!
