I'm thinking about buying an acoustic/electric bass for a couple of projects I'm doing and was thinking of trying a GFS XV400. SX has a bass at around $270 but that's stretching the budget. I don't know much of cheap acoustic/electrics but these seemed to be options. Is there anything I should be looking at? I'm shooting for a sunburst and tort kind of look. For what it's worth, regardless of what I get I plan to make a mount and put an electric pickup on the neck side of the sound hole. Most likely it will be a J or lipstick pickup. I'll stick a volume/tone on the edge of the pickguard and a second output. I'll run the cable I use for the Rics and blend them with my EDB-1. It's just my style.
