    New to upright bass and have one of these just to try out and see if I get on with it.
    Aware this is a student/intermediate,maybe, bass. 20 years old, made in Hungary, great condition offered by an established store.
    Not realy looking to spend a ton so would like thoughts on if this is a reasonable 1k bass or something to steer clear of.
    Thanks for any input.
     
  2. Could be. Hard to say without photos.

    Clear, natural light, no arty angles, please.

    Thanks for the input.
    Do these have an ebony fingerboard?
    Im guessing no but I’m a newbie and can’t tell.

    If it's 20 yrs and from Hungary it might. No guarantees.

    Yea, the label inside says 1999.
    I was looking at the edge of the fingerboard and wasn’t sure.
    I can just ask where I rented it from.
