So I've been an electric player for 6-7 years, been into rockabilly for about 4. The thought to buy a stand-up never crossed my mind... until 3 weeks ago. A new Banjo.com store opened up in a mall close to where I live. I had gone in to check out the resonators when I spotted an upright. Mind you I have never played one of these in my life. As I was playing some of my favorite Misfits licks, it bit me. Now I'm dead set on having one. Any advise when searching for your first upright? Looks don't matter to me much because I'll prolly pinstripe it as soon as I get it anyway, but I would like it to last a good while.
