Clevinger by Robert Lee fretless bass was designed as a electric upright bass (EUB) - the name "Clevinger" is ringing bells in the back of my mind, but I can't remember any details as to why or who might have played one. However, whether it was designed to be played upright (I wonder if it has a detachable spike?) or to be played horizontally, it sure is one hell of an ugly bass. But of course, that shouldn't be our first consideration. The seller claims that it "sounds wonderful and comes close to an upright sound", and that really ought to count for something. Maybe it's one for the studio, and take something prettier out on the road!
Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of US $875.
