I'm going to be getting a two octave four string bass soonish and I'm just weighing up my options in regards to luthiers/companies etc. Right now Sadowsky looks good because they offer pretty much what I'm looking for- a four string bass with a two octave neck for less than 4k (my budget). However, I'd still like to have a look around but I don't really know of many other luthiers (I checked out Carl Thompson and Zon, but I'd prefer a bass that's more... I don't know, conventional looking). If you know anyone you can recommend, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks a lot.
