I'm a beginning bass player, but I have roots in jazz and play other instruments. I want to play acoustic upright but I can't imagine how I'd lug it around without a car it can fit into.

I like the sound of some of those electric acoustics (loved hearing Eberhard Weber in concert years ago), but how much money are we talking about for a decent sound? On the Clevinger website there seems to be quite a range. Also, am I getting ahead of myself? I took a bass class from Jeremy at Blue Bear in SF but otherwise am a complete beginner, though I know some theory, played trombone in college jazz improv groups, etc. Any suggestions?

By the way, this is a great site for bassists!
