Found this online, traced it from ebay listings to the manufacturer's site: Crystalcello MB400U 3/4 Size Unpainted Upright Bass with Bag and Bow It's unfinished, which means I can paint it some obnoxious color. It's got a maple fretboard. And most importantly, it's dirt dirt dirt cheap. I play aggressive folk-punk music (Think of most punk music, but with open guitar chords instead of distorted electric power chords) and I'm looking for something that goes "thump" and nothing more. With a decent pickup, I think I could just plug it into the house PA and get a decent sound. Mind you, when I say "decent" I mean thump. No complex tone, no woody texture, just thump. This is a very utilitarian purchase for the purpose of nothing more than root-fifth progressions and a visual aspect. What do you guys think?
