Hello everyone! Sorry if this topic has been covered already, but I didn't find anything too specific in the archives. I'm considering picking up my first double bass.. a local shop (violins, etc.) pointed me to Christopher basses, but I'm looking at my options. Is there an opinion on these boards about the new Juzek basses? I found this online: http://www.metmusic.com/instruments/Basses.htm & http://www.metmusic.com/instruments/522_bass.htm $1700 is a great price, so anyone with experience please let me know what you think of this bass! Also, how difficult would it be to find an old, pre-war (prague) juzek? ... with a decent price tag? Thanks much!
