First time buyer looking for opinions on prices and same models
First of all great site, been searching and reading like crazy.
Second, I have been playing fretted instruments for over 30 years and recently getting into rockabilly, older county style and want to purchase a stand up double.
The following is whats ive found listed in my area and was curious what you all think of the names and prices. I know nothing about these type of basses.
Yes I have gone to my local music shop and played a few they had there, was fun. Was even better when the guy said how long you been playing stand up, and i said oh about 15 minutes, lol
Strunal Dvorak 50/1 3/4 $ 1000
Stentnor Rockabilly Model: #ST1950L 3/4 OF $ 850
Prima by Violmaster $ 600
palatino 3/4 size upright bass - $600
Karl Knilling 3/4 $ 1000
Engelhardt EM1 $ 850
Menzel ply bass. Fingerboard is off a late 1800's German flatback as is the tailpiece off a 1900 French $750
Any info would be great. I realize all the normal things to look at such as repairs, overall condition and such.
