I went to guitar center today (my first trip, it was "fun" to say the least) and was going through the acoustic section with a friend of mine (guitarist). I saw this Martin acoustic bass sitting in a crowd of guitars and instinctively grabbed it and started messing around. I tried out a couple of slower songs on it (MGB-Apparitions, DMB-Crush, and Crash into me). The sound was really cool, and the neck felt great. The only problem was the price (around $1200 or something). When you're broke, that seems like a lot of money. Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions for good acoustics. I'm just curious.
