Technically as an upright bass this Yamaha SB-1 electric upright bass (EUB) falls outside the remit of this guitar blog, but I do like to feature other stringed instruments on these pages from time to time, and to be perfectly honest, my main reason in featuring this bass is that I really liked the composition of the photograph reproduced here from the eBay listing.
The bass looks huge to those of us used to horizontally-played stringed instruments, but in fact it is only 3/4 scale. I love the skeletal frame which gives the instrument the look of something that might be portrayed in an impressionist painting.
Currently listed on eBay UK with a starting price of £795.
