Well folks, I just pretty much blew the year's, maybe the next couple of year's budget for basses. This is not the exact photo of mine, but rather the maker's site photo. It would be the one on the right. Figured if I am going to play fretless, I ought to play a real fretless. This is my first URB. I have played them off and on when special needs arise. I am not very good but do love to play them. A new learning experience will create some new sparks in me as a musician. I am excited. I might even snoop around over there at the dark side of this site. I have been casted as a singing, bass playing ex-convict in a community spring dinner theater, so I figured I would bite the bullet and buy one. I have tons of friends who would love to get together and pick and sing bluegrass and such, so this ought to come in handy to have around. Oh, it is an Engelhardt ES-9.
