Probably better to say your price range starting with your maximum rather than minimum so people have a better idea of what range you're looking in. If you have an unlimited ceiling, then I'd definitely check out RE Brunes.
Good point. I was hoping for between 1-2k because:
-I am a music teacher & bassist
-I'm musically educated, but I'm not an orthodox classical player. Therefore, fingernail tone and playing properly, unfortunately, isnt in the cards for me unless I quit all my bass gigs
-I'm not impressed with the 'high-end' Taylor production model classical I have
-Classical isn't my primary instrument, but I enjoy playing jazz standards, classical studies, bossa nova
-I might only perform out on classical 1-5 times a year so I dont require anything better (even though I'd love a luthier level instrument). I enjoy playing at home.
I figured I would be happy with an instrument in the 1-2k range (maybe lower if used). As the meme says, "change my mind" (any insight on choosing is appreciated).
My basses are Keith Roscoe high-end instruments (3-6k range) if that provides perspective.
