Yes it is very confusing looking for the "Right" Bass.
Don't be fooled by some of those "Carved" Basses, though..
I've heard Plywoods that sounded better that those Meisels or Englehardts.
Some Questions you should ask yourself. Is he Going to be using it after high
School, or does he just need a bass for the next couple of years?
What is affordable? You should really try to get to a shop, and try some out.
You didn't say where you were in NY. But I Recommend Talking to Barrie Kolstein
at Kolstein Music in Baldwin NY. He can give you some honest advice,and point you
in the right direction. Stay away from NYC unless you can afford at least 5k.
IMO, David Gage is a nice guy, but his basses are way overpriced.Well, there it is,
yet another Opinion!Good Luck!
