2012 Upton Bass

UB Standard 5 string

with K&K pickup,

$2,300

This is the basic laminated bass (UBstandard 5) from Mystic Connecticut's "Upton Bass Co."   in a 5 string version, they no longer produce. The bass originally cost close to $3000  with the 5 string option and it has since had the obligato string upgrade plus a K and K transducer pickup added.  The condition is very close to mint, with a little custom set up work done as it settled in.

It can be strung either "high" (current set up EADGC) or low. (BEADG) depending on your needs. 

Upton is one of only two makers inside the US to produce laminated basses, and they are comfortable to play and sturdy.
