So I am looking to get into playing upright bass. The thing is, they are so damn expensive! Haha. So now I am considering getting an electric upright. I have read they are not the same "feel" as a regular upright, which is probably true because they seem to be much smaller. But I would be able to use my amp with it and I think that would just be cool! So any ideas/tips for getting an electric upright? It will be first one so I do not want to go too high with the price. I was thinking about getting a Dean from musicians friend for $500 but if someone knows of something better for around the same price it would be appreciated!
