I guess I'll have to look deeper to find the flaws
Sooo... you're a fellow upright bass player? I learned on an upright back when I was 13 years old and the music instructor had to beg me for weeks but I kept saying No until he explained to me that it was the same as a bass guitar and I was hooked ever since... I got a Chinese upright bass just to add to my collection and it plays ok but the neck started to separate from the body so I had to take it apart and do some major repairs to keep it in one piece...
