Hey, I don't anything and I mean anything about electric uprights but my good friend has played bass for a good 8 years now and we've just graduated high-school. I thought it would make an awsome graduation present to get her an electric and an amp. I guess what I'm wondering is if I could get a decent bass and amp for under a grand. I figure its her first and if she really likes it then she can upgrade later. But anyway does anyone have any suggestions or know of anyone I can talk to that could help me out. Thanks.
