I am very close to purchasing my first upright bass. I went to my local Bass shop (robertson and sons) and I played a fully carved roma bass that was $3000 included fiberglass bow and case. What do you all think. It was new, fully set up and he said he would put on some ddario helicore strings free of charge. Is this a good deal? he also said that if i traded it in I would get full value of what I paid towards a new instrument and I know the shop is reputable (nationally renound). Thanks for your help.
