    So I've been playing bass for about 15 years now and have always wanted an upright bass but didn't even know where to start, it seems like different world from what i know. I've found 2 potential starter upright basses on craigslist within my price range but i don't want to over pay or buy something with an issue that i overlooked because of my lack of knowledge. Are either of these two worth my time? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    If you have any friends who teach the double bass, it would be a good idea for them to have a look at the instrument first.
    Better to get a good instrument to learn on instead of learning on one that doesn't respond.
