    My gateway drug to the world of upright.
    Going to be playing this in a Bluegrass/Americana band.
    Can't wait to get better acquainted.
    This is an Eastman, purchased used from a local TBer, who bought it from another local TBer. Glad she's staying in the family.

    even though ply, there is some very pretty wood here.

    Looks beautiful. Dump the steel strings and get some guts or synthetics on that thing!

    I loved play:bassist:ing standup but a surgery keeps me from doing it now. I use an electric standup made by Lee Barker of Redmond, Oregon. I love mine, too! Too bad Lee just retired! Best of luck with your new relationship!
