Hey, I'm currantly in the market for a new bass, I'm hiring one at the moment for the local music service, and well... I realy want one of my own. I'd like to buy a bass and be done with it; keep it for the rest of my years. I only have a maximum of $6000-$6500! I am aware however that this is a feeble amout of money. I'm after a 4/4 sized, 4 string bass only used for Classical, I would prefure an older bass, but in my price rance its hard, all solid wood is well... a must!
