Yet another unintentional Sam Ash purchase. I saw it in the acoustic room and tried it out. For not too much money, it's an excellent acoustic bass. 32" scale. No super glossy (sticky) finish like the AEB5E or AEB10E that a ton of people have. Nice low action. Sounds great amplified. My elderly downstairs neighbors live in FL for most of the year and come back to NY for the warmer months, so when they're here, an acoustic will come in handy. Anyone know the deal with this open pore business? Is it a good thing? Anyways....it plays and sounds great.
