This consignment custom 5 string Upton Professor model comes to the shop from a professional player who experimented with a 5 string bass at home for 6 years before going back to a 4 string bass with an extension that I had sold to him 13 years ago. Played exclusively in the house all of that time, this instrument presents as a nearly new instrument and has developed nicely with regular use in exercises and etudes. This professor model sports a medium grain width spruce top, Lightly figured Maple flat back, sides, and neck, Custom upgrade Sloane tuners, Ebony fittings, Belgian style bridge, Full Circle pickup Dark brown varnish finish, and set of Spirocore mittel on the E up to high C strings. DIMENSIONS are: Top length 43 7/8″, Upper bout width 20 5/8″, Middle bout width 15 5/8″, Lower bout 27″, Depth at tail 8 5/8″, Depth at upper bout corner 8 1/4″, Depth at neck 7 3/8″, String length 41 7/8″. Though there is room for more development of the voice through practice and performance play, the response is lively and very even at this stage. A very nice high student level instrument in nearly new condition. With cover.
