  1. At this moment, I'm renting an Englehardt CS-1. I had the pleasure of playing a friend's Swingmaster, and was so impressed, I'm thinking of ordering one from Musician's Friend. Possibly a bad idea to "order" it? Thanks

  4. I would steer clear of Musician's Friend.

    If you are really convinced you want to order a Swingmaster online, do it from Bob & Mark Gollihur. See here: http://gollihurmusic.com/product/1244-ENGELHARDT_SWINGMASTER_ES_9_EG_9_BASS.html

    Call them up, ask them questions, etc. Keep in mind you may have to spend extra money on setup after it arrives, but they can talk to you about that.

    That said, it is MUCH better to buy local.

    Sorry we can't help more. I don't know of any shops in "the abyss that is in my mind".
