Hello everyone! I've been playing a cheap Eastman bass for the past 4 years, it's worth about $1,000 and is a half size. I'm ready to move up to a better quality bass but kind of need to stay at a half size, maybe a 5/8. Any advice on where to go? I'm in 9th grade and plan to go into bass performance in college and as a career, so i'd like to stick with this bass for a while but not get outrageouly expensive. Thanks! I'm also looking to sell the Eastman so if you're interested or have advice on that topic feel free to contact me. Thanks again.
