Hey, guys, soon I'll be doing auditions for college, and I'm looking to upgrade from the bass I have right now (chinese ply PoS) I'm trying not to spend over ~five grand on it, which sort of limits me. I was looking at Uptons, but the only basses I can get from there for around that much are hybrids. I guess my question is: will a hybrid work for college? Should I go for a full carved? tl;dr hybrid or fully carved for college? Also, if you guys could recommend a company/bass I missed, that would be awesome too.
