The Eminence Portable Acoustic Electric Upright Bass boasts a fully acoustic body that delivers real acoustic sound.
We now have 2 of these FIXED Neck Eminence basses in stock as of late March 2023.
Also 3 Removable Neck models are here.
My cost of getting them here is a lot higher than usual so they are priced to cover that extra cost.
We CUSTOM SHAPE your Fingerboard, Nut and Bridge ESPECIALLY for YOUR Style of playing. Your bass goes thru our Custom Setups Shop after we find out from you exactly HOW you play Upright Bass, and we SHAPE the fingerboard for the perfect height string action for you, and for bowing only, plucking only, or both; low fast jazz action up to high hard plucking WITHOUT EXCESS STRING RATTLE.
THIS WAY you get the bass customized for your way of playing so you can dig in HARD without a bunch of string rattling if that's what you want to do; or play light and fast with as low an action as Stanley Clarke has on his upright. You can't have both on the same bass, the fingerboard has to be shaped differently for lighter to heavier handed playing. You can only tweak it so far by adjusting the bridge lower or higher - the fingerboard has to be shaped to allow a heavy hand without rattling, OR to allow as low as possible a string action all along the fingerboard for that fast smooth jazz playing! Ask for a setup in the middle of that and have it your way. :^)
Order thru us and we'll talk with you until we understand JUST HOW YOU WANT IT, and THEN DO IT THAT WAY. Imagine that, internet shopping and getting a CUSTOM setup on your bass just like you want it. Then having it arrive to your door.
More players agree the Eminence is the best sounding acoustic electric upright than any other bass, fact.

You can lean every direction as far as you want while playing this bass, the anti-rotational endpin foot has a swivel joint to allow this. Great feature for being able to express yourself more fully while playing instead of being stuck in position to an EUB on a stand.
The bass is also very light in your hand allowing you to move around faster and easier as your fingers create your music. Set yourself free!!!.
