    Ok so I’ve decided to get an EUB, but I need it cheap, as in under $600 if possible but TELL ME if you think this is a bad idea. I need something that will let me play arco and pizz. I looked at a wish (www.wishbass.com) but it seems like that is a little too cheap let me know what you think.

    I have never seen a reputible electric upright bass available anywhere near that price.

    i have a messenger bass by john knutson - this thing is unreal. i don't have a vehicle to move a DB around, so this is the second best thing. listen to the soundclips on his website - www.messengerbass.com

    I suggest you contact Jesse O'Neil. HE is a former luthier from Warrior making some very nice and affordavle EUB'S. His email is jesseblu74@aol.com
