Electro acoustic basses

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by VinceLovesF, Mar 24, 2005.


  1. Hello everyone!

    Does anybody have an idea of brands for those basses....
    As I will study in Scotland next year, I don't want to bring neither my F Bass and Fender there...As I won't stay a while...

    I will consider all the brands, from cheap to high end, perhaps I'll keep it after scotland if I like it!

    Thanks
    Vince

  5. You could try a full custom like

    Dave Maize

    or

    Abe Wechter

    I have one of the Wechter acoustic guitars and love it. I supppose that ordering a bass would probably be out of the question, depending on when you're leaving.
     
  6. I once owned a Rick Turner Renaissance 5 fretless and liked it a lot despite the high price of Thomastik-Infeld's nylon-core strings. There are other options for strings of course but the Thomastiks are very nice on that bass. I just tried out some Rob Allen basses and although they're quite expensive they have an amazing sound. I especially like the Deep 5. It's their most expensive model starting at US$3949. It comes from the shop with LaBella black nylon tapewound strings. I have used these strings before on a fretless Tobias and likewise on the Deep 5 the sound is massive. I hit the low G and I thought I found the brown note! These things are serious!
