: Hello everyone,
: I've played electric bass for about 17 years. I plan to buy an upright and I have found a 1/2 sized laminated that sounds decent, feels great and is selling for a very reasonable price. Everyone I have spoken with says I should not get a 1/2 sized but a 3/4 sized. Could someone point me in the right direction? (I'm currently in a jazz quintet which plays local bars and restaurants)

If you feel comfortable with it, and like the tone, I see no reason to discard it.
I've played for years on a hungarian plywood 5/8 and liked it a lot.
The scale is shorter than a 3/4 but so what?
My $0.02.
