Ok, these violin basses look like fun. I'd like to try one to mess around with and obviously I don't want to spend the $$ for a Hofner. So, I'm looking at a Rogue and a Brice. Here's what I see on the surface...Brice, sold by Rondo Music. I own a SX P-bass and it's pretty nice for the price. Plus, the Brice bass looks a little sharper but is higher priced $249.00. The Rogue, cheaper $199 plus until 10/31, MusiciansFriend is offering a $50 rebate which would allow me to buy a hardshell case. That's the extent of my knowledge on these two basses. I've read some reviews on MF and Harmony-Central, but I trust my fellow bassists here more. Any help would be appreciated my brothers and sisters in bass.
