I've always had in the back of my mind that I wanted to play upright. I've tried all the gimmicks to make my electric basses sound like and upright but nothing is quite the same. I've tried fretless basses (with fret markings) and they just sit differently in the mix - it's not the same functionality. The other night we played a show and one of the bands had an upright and I was just in amazement. My band also agreed and said they'd totally support me if I wanted to use it on all our songs or, however I see fit. So what am I overlooking? I'd hate to buy one and then play it for a month and never pick it up again. I played one of those NS electric upright in grade school but it had fret markings... I want to hear from the people who invested in one and then put it down for good or sold it. Why did you? Maybe you can talk me out of it?
