It's Dull

I'm about ready to trash my six string bass. This thing has no character, no personality. It's a bore to play. My $180 4 string with frets removed sounds better to my ears than this $600 behemoth. I think the fact that it isn't made out of real wood gives it a sterile, boring sound.
Hopefully I'll be able to sell it to a good home and use the money toward an upright bass. I had so much fun playing the cello that I'm sure I'd have even more fun on an instrument tuned in 4th's rather than 5th's. Then I can take my show on the road......excellent.
