You can now buy a fairly nice upright for price of a good slab. Sometimes
though I just don't feel like playing the upright in a tight stage situation so I play a very cheap Rogue fretless acoustic/electric with a sansamp DI and get a good imitation of the upright. That rig gets a fair amount of attention
from other bass players too. I never new how good I could sound until I started using the eq box.

I owe fatpaul a great big "thank you" for that advice about the sansamp. I haven't seen fatpaul around the boards lately;
He must be busy with one of the greatest blues/r&b bands in the southwest "Brother E and the Blue Rhythm Kings"

He told me he plays a 62' Fender Precision his grandmother gave him and she had bought it new. It sat in the closet for many years. He said the volume pot crapped on him so he bought all new electronics and turned it into an "active" bass. I was sad to hear that. Myself, I would of restored the beauty and went out and bought me an active bass.
I like it when bass players come up and talk with me regardless if their comments are good or bad. It strokes the ego when it's good.
