Hey Im a lefty who's considering getting an upright bass. In fact I most likely will get one at some stage. I've done some research here and it seems bob gollihur basses are quite respectibal instruments as are the new standards. Im just wondering how bobs fully carved offering compares to a new standard laminate and hybrid models. Would you think the new standard bass is better than bobs carved one inspite of it being laminate? Also will the new standard need as much(compared to bobs) if any extra work done by a luthier to setup or is it playable straight from the crate? Oh and if others can think of some other similar quality lefty instruments Im not considering please mention them. Right handed instruments are a big no no for me. So don't bother trying to convince me otherwise. Sorry if I ask silly questions I'm new to this side of things. Anyways any help is appreciated.
