Comments about NS Design WAV Series 4-String Upright Electric Bass:
I can't say enough about this bass. After being out of bluegrass music for 15 years I was asked to join a band I'd followed for almost 30 years. At first I tried using my P bass but knew that wasn't going to fit, so I found this on GC's website and placed an order. The local stores don't carry this which is a real shame. I'd loved to have tried one first, but I checked them out on youtube and saw other guys playing them and liked what I heard. The one I purchased was listed as a "blem" and was reduced $200, but that never bothers me because I figure it's going to get scratched playing venues & such. When it arrived I scanned it top to bottom and could find no evidence of a blem anywhere. It looked perfect. I mounted it to the tri-pod, plugged it in and the sound was incredible right from the start. It sounds so much like the acoustic upright I used to play years ago. The feel, the sound, everything is right there. The guys in the band love it and say it sounds just like an acoustic. These are seasoned musicians who've performed live for years, so if they're saying that it must be true. I would recommend this to anyone wanting the acoustic upright sound without all the bulk of hauling a full sized acoustic bass around. Ned Steinberger (NS) has done a great job with these. And its absolutely beautiful to look at. For the price you can't lose on this one.
