I've got the big Yankee Clipper and she is a great bass. But alas, she is too big for me. I just took out a loaner while my bass was being overhauled, a Shen with sloping shoulders and was amazed at the difference getting up into thumb position. I need a 3/4 that has an amazing quick response and big acoustic sound. I'm trying to keep it under $30,000 for sure. Anyone out there know a great bass for sale?
