whats going on with the doghouse ?....(havent heard anyone call it that in years by the way...its nice to hear )

is it an old finicky instrument ?.....or you mean just much harder to play being more used to electric bass?

do tell....that is one of my favorite sounding instruments on the planet
I have a modest upright. It's insane that you can spend as much on a great one as the cost of a grand piano. The best bass I ever played was Scott Lafaro's -- didn't even know it was his. It had magic in it.

It's just a bear of an instrument. Very physically demanding. Very limiting. Very difficult to make audible. Intonation is a bitch (unless you're Scott LaFara). But it has a beauty to it.
