Hello All, I'm looking for a decent DB around the LA area. I'm completely new to the DB, in fact have never even played one. Been a guitar player for 25 years, and a electric/acoustic bass player for the last two years. I don't know anyone locally that plays a DB, nor any teachers. So, I'm kind of going out on a limb looking for my first DB. I'm looking to play bluegrass with a funk twist, and need something that will allow me to accomplish this. Are any of you fine folks from the LA/Ventura area? Any recommendations on local shops that carry DB's? Any help would be appreciated. Budget: $1,500. BTW, I read through a bunch of the Newbie stickies, and none quite addressed what I was trying to find, so I hope I'm not posting in the wrong place.
