Plastic uprights for cheap?

    I'm an orchestral/jazz/solo bassist and rower in northern Florida, and I'm in the market for an upright made of plastic, not as a replacement or backup, but as both an introduction to variations on acoustics, and a joke: I'm going to film myself on a sculling shell playing it for a project in the distant future. Naturally, no idiot with a half a brain would bring their wooden bass on a tipsy rowing boat, but I'm failing to find any plastic uprights for sale on the web. If anyone can give me a pointer or two to either a site where I can review such basses or as to the location of one in the USA, it'd be much appreciated. I'll take a look at anything but I'm primarily interested in some worn out, cheapo piece of plastic. The inclusion of a bridge or strings is unnecessary. Thank you!
  2. There's a Roth-Finch for sale in the Music-Go-Round store in Lilburn, Georgia. They want $800 for it, which is outrageous.

    Both Sheriff and Hqubed are assuming that by "plastic" you probably mean fiberglass. I've never heard (or heard of) a plastic bass. Can't imagine it would sound too good.
