    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. :help:

    Hell no... All of the EUB (Electrig "Upright" basses) I have seen top 2k-2.6k, Let alone the Amps...
     
  4. Do as Don suggests but truthfully, you're in serious Double Bass territory here....so you may not get alot of glowing reports...good luck though.
