Alright well ive bought my entry level upright bass. I got it online which i know now wasnt the right thing to do (NEVER BUY FROM www.guitaronline.com), but i didnt have the cash for a good bass, not even close to enough, and the price was more than attractive. It's going to be a huge repair and reconstruction bill $400+ to even make it playable, but it will be a hell of an instrument when this guy finishes working on it. So now im looking further down the road. What are some of the top basses to get? I want to start saving up now and buy an amazing bass to use in a few years, and a new bow, mines hideous and not worthy of a fine instrument. So yeah, im just wondering what are the top of the line basses? Maybe even a custom shop? I dunno, itd be great to get some input.
