I'm starting to look into trying upright (solely a BG player now). I was checking out these Milano basses on this site: http://www.gotofmi.com/cremsb112siz.html The price is right on these, that's for sure---If I can get in for around 600 bucks like that I'll feel a lot less stressed out about the "experiment"---wondering if it makes sense to get something like this, or hunt down something better used (considering I have no idea what to look for in an UB). Also, is 3/4 the most common size? I see 1/2 and 1/4 on that site too. How different do they sound, and does it make any sense to get a smaller bass for starters? I'm an adult, about 5'9".
