Hi, I am a fairly solid jazz saxophonist and pianist, and a hack guitarist as well. I have decided to learn some upright bass (cause I am tired of always looking for a bass player), but there don't seem to be many reputable places around my area (I live in Palo Alto, in Northern CA) that sell basses. In particular, I have not found anyone that carries Engelhardts and I would at least like to try one of these as they come recommended in terms of student basses. I am also looking for a good rent-to-own scenario. Can anyone local point me in the right direction? Thanks so much!
