Since the handle on my cloth case broke on the way into my gig last Friday, and my low end Chinese-made bass rolled down one stair and into a big mud puddle, I've decided its time to upgrade not only my case but my bass. (A seam popped loose in the process as well...) I play mainly bluegrass/country however I plan to play more jazz in the near future. I enjoyed banging up this bass while on the road but now I THINK I want a hybrid. I want to spend under $5,000. Any recommendations on what brands/models to at least start researching? Am I crazy to rule out fully carved basses at this price point?
