I'm planning to buy a bass, and I'm in between a full carved bass and a hybrid. Probably, the most I could pay for it would be $5000.00- $7000.00, so that's the problem. I've been thinking in: 1. Carcassi 2. Hybrid (Shen or Christopher) 3. full carved Christopher- busetto shaped I don't know if any of you have something to say about this. I just graduated from college and I need something better.
