Lemur has several basses for sale in my price range (i.e., $2000 and under). It looks like most are plywood, which is also something I'm looking for. Besides that though, some of the basses don't have much of a description. Since I'm in the market for a double bass, I am keeping Lemur open as an option. I would probably buy a custom electric bass mail order again, but with a double bass I have many more reservations about buying something I've never touched. Can anyone give some additional information regarding the basses advertised? Or, advice concerning Lemur or just buying basses mail order, in general? On the link I've attached, there is a "3/4 Czech Laminated Bass" for $1425.00 and a "Euro Best Laminated Bass" for $1650.00. I am familiar with the Englehardt Swingmaster (in so far as hearing the name several times, but I have never played one). Thank you. http://www2.mailordercentral.com/lemurmusic/ I just noticed the link doesn't take you exactly where I am speaking of, you must select the Double Bass Instruments, then Student and Mid-Priced Basses options from the left-hand frame.
