Well, I already know that this is the place for opinions, so I thought that I would ask! Seriously, this is a great place to get some good insight on different products. I am wanting to get an acoustic bass, not an upright or a fretless. I do love those, they just wouldn't fit for the need if you know what I mean. Anyway, I know that the Tacoma Thunderchief is a great ABG, but I don't want to spend much money because it won't be used that often. I am thinking about the Epiphone El Capitan because of the giant body size and some other reviews that I have read. Any thoughts on this or other ABG's? Thanks guys!!
