: I'm hunting for a 1/8 size bass for my daughter (as posted earlier) but knowing little about them - how do I tell what size is what? How are they measured? Is there an easy 'rule of thumb' way to tell? I know I'm also supposed to look for solid top rather than laminated - any other useful tips? Thanks. Julia.

The editorial e-mail address of Double Bassist magazine is: doublebassist@orphpl.com. Phone is 44-020-8863-2020. These dealers will be very expensive: www.contrabass.co.uk (London); Hamilton Caswell (in Bristol); www.turnerviolins.co.uk (Nottingham) Maybe they can steer you in the right direction.
