Hello, I am a member of the Texas All-State High School Orchestra and am in desperate need of a bass. I am high above my 9th grade level. I have been renting a school bass . Recently I have been looking for a bass on lemurmusic.com and have become interested in the Sunrise laguna bass. I have a fairly tight budget. A bass in the $2000-$3000 range. I have played on the Sunrise Laguna's and if I do say so myself, they play very smoothly and sound quite nice as well. Anything to escape the laminated nightmare I have right now would be a dream. Thank you very much, Advice would be more than appreciated.
