Getting ready to purchase my first bass and I need a little help.
I fully commit when I plan to do something so I have no intention
of buying an $800 bass and beiing unhappy with the sound. I plan to spend
about $2500 and get the proper lessons:
1. I'm 5 feet eleven and I carry comparable weight and strength. i.e I'm
a big guy. What size instrument should I be looking at? I held a 3/4 the
other day and it seemed small.
2. I saw Bob golliher's web page for the fully carved bass, solid spruce
top, solid maple sides and back, rbony finger board. Has anyone heard feedback
on this instrument, good or bad?
3. Anyone out there play a 5 string or have comments on it?
