Dave - if you look around this list, there are several threads on inexpensive basses. A basic caution is that you should buy it "on approval" and have it checked out by a Bass luthier. You're also going to have to plan on spending a couple of hundred to have any <$1000 bass set up correctly and maybe add a new set of strings, unless you get REALLY lucky. Good luck.
: I want to start playing an upright bass in a small bluegrass band, but I know nothing about them.. I would like to spend around $1000 for a bass...Which ones would fall into this range.. And what should I look for in purchasing one...Thanks to all who respond
