    I am looking to get an acoustic bass. I live in a small town and have no way of trying either of these and am going to trust peoples opinions. Keep in mind I do a lot of two handed tapping so the action must be able to get relatively low.

    The two I am interested in is:

    Washburn AB34
    Michael Kelly Firefly

    Your thoughts?
     
  2. I have recorded a couple of the Washburn AB34's and I think they sound the best from your choices!
