I've heard that Palatinos are cheaply made and don't sound so good when played. Try interstate music, they have some really low prices.
Look around for a Kay, those are really durable, my first bass (well, technically not MINE, but the one that I used) was an old Kay bass. I'm on an Englehardt right now, it was in the lower price range, but good for a first bass. Look around for the most part, and ask lots of questions, and go try them out before you buy them! Try calling around pawn shops, sometimes they get ahold of uprights. They might need some repair, but any well-knowledged luthier couldn't handle.
: I'm thinking about getting my first upright.
: Any opinions on the Palatino VB-004?
