I have recently purchased a cheap Chinese DB here in Hsinchu/Taiwan where I'm currently located for professional reasons. I sold my first DB when I was 18 (for my first car - SIN!) and it's taken 20 years for me to decide to get another one ... I was wondering whether there are any other bass players in the area (northern Taiwan) and expecially one who might be willing to teach me. I've been playing jazz-guitar and bass-guitar for years, if that helps ...?? Another question goes towards the built of the instrument: I remember that my first DB had a fingerborad that featured a kind of edge under the e-string, whereas my current intrument has a uniform, round cross-section. What's the significance of this difference? Any response is highly appreciated. Best wishes to everybody!
