Acoustic Bass shoping

  1. Hi I'm looking to buy an acoustic bass so I was wondering what some of you would suggest. My price range is about 300-500 dollars, and at the this time I'm looking at the Dean Perofrmer plus. Any way if you all could give me your suggestions that would be great.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I have an Olympia ABG, which is Tacoma's import. I like it as far as ABGs go, though I really don't care for ABGs overall. I personally think that if you pay more than 300 bucks, you're spending too much for what you get.

    I got mine for $265.00, which was a decent deal.

    The Olympia puts out a good bit of sound from my experience.

    I have a Tanglewood acoustic bass which I use mainly for practising at home. It's a good bass.I love being able to just pick it up and play it without having to plug it.
