I know I've read other threads on this but I am currently shopping for a bass and was hoping for some advice. Currently I play a German plywood with an Eb neck. It is a great bass. Very durable. Plays great. Sounds pretty good but it does have the limitations inherent in any plywood bass. I am in the market for a carved bass. Question is does it matter if the new bass is a Eb neck also. I've played other basses at jam sessions. I was also a high school orchestra teacher for a year. I never really had a problem but never had to know any of those instruments as intimately has one I own. Any insights would be appreciated.
