I'm gonna keep this short, but I'm currently using a school model Englehardt string bass for home practice, my school has 2 others with high action and 3 other unknown basses with peeling fingerboards. I'm not too sure on the model of the Englehardt, but It's not the "swing master" one or whatever. Eiher way, does anyone know some decent places here in Connecticut to check out some intermediate basses with good playability, adjustable bridges preferred, but with the money I'm working with I'll end up putting that on as a modification most likely with a Realist pickup (I have access to a Barcus Berry Cello/Bass transducer/preamp which is home right now)... Either way, I'm sick of playing uprights with action that's roughly 1-2 Inches high off the finerboard in the upper most register... That's not cool for fingerstyle and DEFINETLY not cool for upper register playing. Either way, I don't mind student model uprights as I am only 15, but I've been playing upright seriously for over a year and have about 3 years total on it... pictures of my current upright: Either way, I'm looking for good playability, $1500-$2000 or even a used $1200. I WILL BE FINANCING, I'M POOR. I'm looking at $40-$50 a month for financing.
