    I'm waiting for my roscoe, and I wander around and I see one of these palatino EUB's, so I place the order tonight. It should be here next week. I can't wait :). Though I doubt this can distract me from my roscoe.

    You mean one of these?

    They look nice enough and the price is nice- let us know how it feels/sounds. I've always wanted a DB to bow and play walking lines on, but know that I'd never put in enough time to warrant buying a decent one (and decent DBs cost muy dinero).

    what made you choose that over, say, the KYDD?

    Ah, okay. I saw that he mention EUB but I didn't see one on the site for some reason, so I assumed the upright had a preamp or something.

    Price, looks, and customization options. I'm not a fan of the walkingstick type design where there's no body. I wanted something URB-esque without the weight or size. I didn't want a neck on a stand. Plus, these are 40.5" scale and have an ebony fingerboard.

    Here's a pic of what it looks like.

  9. I've played one not too long ago, our local dealer has one on the floor. It's not too terribly bad, considering the price. Playability is good, the scale length was a bit awkward coming from the 41.375 NSD I'm used to, but I adjusted pretty quickly. The only weakness I found was the piezos are a bit "quacky" and the preamp is a bit weak to deal with the piezos.

    I think for what they are though, they're a pretty smokin' deal, and if you can add a preamp that will deal with the piezos, I'd bet it'll sound great.
