Comments about Palatino VE-550 Electric Upright Bass:
This upright is fantastic for the price. It does sound much better than my bass guitar. And I have no problems with the end-pin or any other part of the instrument. It looks great and, as I said before, sounds great. The only problem I have is getting it into the gigbag. But that just might be me. Other than that, SUPERB!
