: I'm a bass beginner with cheapo electric I bought for 50 bucks in the early '80'sand a few bass lessons.. I know I want to play jazz-- can improvise OK on trombone, have loved jazz for 30 years, can play some guitar-- but I don't know how to switch to a decent sounding upright. It won't fit in my car, for one!

: What are some views on the upright electric acoustics as an alternative? Can anyone recommend a mid-priced model or give any tips about these instruments? I've liked the sound I've heard in concerts.

I play an Azola Baby Bass that is an incredible instrument. It has a floating head and a great piezo system that mimics my upright and is really transportable. The downside is it is not cheap, but worth every cent.
