Gary on Twitter

Our old Twitter account got so clogged with eBay SPAM, FaceBook Pushes and other non-human garbage that we shut it down.  Gary started a new account, tabula rasa, and it's real!  You may not care what beer or cheese he just ate...or you might...but I guarantee it's real and definitely entertaining.  Give him a follow...tweet tweet...

It's ready...it's time...so back to Mystic we go!

For those of you who follow Upton Bass, you know we have been building a new workshop, and it's nearly complete!

Gary has been rebuilding an 1800's Witch Hazel mill on his property for over a year now...and the final touches are being completed as I type.  It's a beautiful post & beam barn that sets the stage for instrument building, and we are all ready to move into such an inspiring building.

Tomorrow, Wednesday October 17th is the big move day!  We will be moving over everything essential to building basses, with all the other odds and ends coming over in stages over the next two weeks.  With the exception of Wednesday, Upton Bass Headquarters in Connecticut will stay open for business during this time.

However, Upton Bass Boston will stay exactly where it is, and when you call, you will most likely be greeted by Joshua, our Boston Showroom Manager.  The Boston showroom hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm and although our 1-860-535-9399 number will ring in both locations, if you are having troubles getting through you can try the direct number in Boston as well, 1-617-236-7706.


Drop us a line or call any time. And remember... the best is yet to come!

One of the final touches on the barn is the cupola, seen here being hoisted on top.  The "big red barn" can be seen as you drive up the street...hard to miss really...and it just sets the stage for what lies within!

UB HQ Workshop Floor Our front door opens into the main workshop!  Take a good look at it empty because after today, it will be a hive of bass building!

With reclaimed timber for the floor and beams we made ourselves from an old American Chesnut tree that was growing through the old Witch Hazel Mill foundation...the workshop is as beautiful as the basses we will make in it.

The third floor will be home to the showroom...empty now...but tomorrow the basses move in.  I cant wait to hear Gary's award winning Brescian being played in the middle of this room...
