    I don't quite know what you mean by 1950's style bass, but I do know that the Fender P-Bass was introduced in the 50's.

    And your username leaves a lot to be desired.

  4. For rocka-/psychobilly you'd want an upright made out of plywood, not an electric bass. An electric bass won't sound, or look, the part, IMO.
    As to where you can find one, I've got no clue. But you can probably find a used upright at a reasonable price looking through every classified ad resource you can find.
