If you all have answered these questions a hundred times, please ignore.

After playing bluegrass banjo for many years I would like to take up the
the bass. Can anyone answer two questions?:

1. What is standard against which all basses used in bluegrass are measured?
A 1940s Kay M-1?

2. Can anyone recommend one or two makes/models of bass as a starting point?
Something between the middle and high end of the quality spectrum?

Thank you,
Pete Kelly
