I'm a guitar player who has always wanted to start playing upright bass. I'm in search of some direction on what to look for in a bass. I know I don't want some cheap Chinese bass. I want something with TONE that I can use to adapt to my many different styles of music. I'll primarily be playing Rockabilly, Traditional and Alt-Country and Bluegrass. I want to spend somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,200 to $1,5000.00. I'd prefer a darker stain to the wood. ebony fingerboard etc. I reside in Colorado. What can you tell me about ply vs/ carved tops? Is a used Kay the way to go? Anyone have something for sale////ket me know! ANY help you can give me will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
