Upton Bass Hawkes Model Double Bass 2007 Opus 60
This Upton Bass Hawkes is a great example of one of our early fully laminated double basses. Large pattern, violin cornered, built with remarkable veneers throughout, to highlight the possibilities of our in-house plywood fabrication.
This particular plywood Upton Bass Hawkes upright bass has had a leisurely life in a home studio, and is in many ways unchanged from when it left our (then) Stonington workshop! With a few setup adjustments, it can be expertly tailored to your playing and ready for a lifetime of gigging and recording. The outer veneers are really striking, beautifully patterned and figured from every angle.
These Hawkes instruments really broke ground for us, with such a big sound, top tier playability and accessible price point. They don’t come up for sale all that often, as they remain stalwart workhorses in player’s quivers even as they add instruments many times the price.
Would make a great introductory package – includes Upton Rev Solo Pickup, bass bag, folding bass stand and French style UB Workshop bow!
