    I already have a Fender Kingman acoustic bass and love it,,,, but I am wanting to get a second acoustic and was looking for suggestions on which acoustic brands have the thin'est and/or the small'est bodies.

    Not looking to spend a lot of money on one,,, even a no name/off brand bass would be fine.

    Suggestions ???

    Cheers

    I had an older Ibanez AEB 45 that was a thin line. I got it used since they are discontinued and it was pretty good. I felt I would'nt use it enough and it had feedback so i returned it. I have been told one of those plastic surpressor inserts will help that problem thou.

    The Godin A-4 and A-5 are pretty thin.

    Martin OOC16GTAE Very thin body, but incredible acoustic sound! A bit spendy, though.

    Small, thin body. Short scale I think.

    The Samick looks about as acoustic as the Chet Atkins Gibson guitar. Is it a true acoustic or a solidbody electric with acoustic pickups?
