Upton Bass Victor Wooten Double Bass: “Carcassi” Copy

Victor asked us to copy his 18th Century instrument labeled as a Vincenzo Carcassi, a stout wide-ribbed 5/8ths double bass.

We built him two different versions, and are now making this unique instrument available to you.

Description

Upton Bass is proud to have completed this custom commission for legendary bass guitarist Victor Wooten!

The project began with the idea for a collaboration at the 2015 ISB show in Rochester.  Victor asked to bring us his 18th Century instrument labeled as a Vincenzo Carcassi, a stout wide-ribbed 5/8ths double bass. Victor loves the sound and feel of his Carcassi and hoped we could capture that in some new basses.  The resulting removable-neck fully carved and fixed neck hybrid versions are fantastic smaller instruments – if this recipe sounds like the right fit for you, give us a call to discuss your own! +1 (860) 535-9399.
