I bought a Palatino bass a while back when it was on sales at I love it. It is an import but you wouldnt believe the tone I get out of it. The one I got has an ebony fingerboard. Maybe one of these will work for you too. I also got a Barcus Berry pickup - one that you screw on the bridge so you dont have to drill holes all over the place. I gotta get one of those for my guitar next. We play bluegrass at alot of festivals here in the summer and on the weekends and I take this thing wherever I go!

: : 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!
