i hear you cant bow it well, since there isn't much interest in EUB there isn't a lot of cheap ones that are good, you could always try buying a bass fingerboard and nut online or from a local luthier and making the body yourself which doesn't affect the sound much so if it doesn't look great, then . . . oh well

You don't want that bass. It's a 35" scale upright. It sounds and plays like a fretless electric - period.

Now, uprights of any kind are a pricey business. You will not get a decent electric for under a grand production-line. The eBay stuff (Palatino, Santini) play well but have some crappy parts (electronics, etc), but the best EUB for a decent price is simply the NS Designs WAV4. It's about a grand. End of.

Now, if and when I get one of these, I'll check out Ergo instruments. They make great looking and sounding (check YouTube) electric uprights made to order for a decent price. Check them out.

Keep in mind thought - electric uprights sound like **** for pizz playing. They really do. Arco is great, and more convincing, but pizz on EUBs ends up either sounding like a fretless electric or piezo hell.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..
