: I have recently started shopping for my first upright bass, but I don't know what size I should go for. I'm about 5'8".
: I'm also wondering what to do if I find a great deal but it's not my size. Do I buy and adapt. I guess what I'm asking is "How important is the size of the bass".
Probably more important than the size of the bass is the length of the string from nut to gridge. You might measure the string length of basses you have played to see what length was comfortable for you. If the string is too long, it's not worth the aggravation.
