I just use the regular upright in the Kontakt 5 library. It's sounded great in all the mixes I've put it in. I featured it in this song:

There's also a "jazz upright" in Kontakt that uses aftertouch to regulate the pitch of the note, letting you get a lot more realistic with the sound. However, it's very difficult to use in practice--getting the note anywhere close to on-pitch is difficult. It's probably meant for someone who wants to do a lot of editing to the MIDI scroll.
