Hello all, I am considering predominately switching to acoustic basses (and acoustic instruments in general-guitar, mandolin, banjo, etc). I will still keep at least my favorite electric and my rig which is super compact anyway, but I am thinking about selling a bass and electric guitar and possibly amp to fund going more acoustic overall. I am more interested in the nicer, higher end acoustic basses that do actually have some projection to them. Tacoma Thunderchiefs, older USA made Guilds like B30s, the current Martin BCPA4, older Martins, that kind of thing. I am also interested in more independent/custom luthiers with praised acoustic basses like Harry Fleishman, Emerald with their Balor Bass, Santa Cruz with the True Acoustic Bass, Rigel and so on. There is an acoustic luthier reasonably close to me who has built acoustic basses, so I could potentially work with him to build something as well. Obviously, these options are generally more expensive, but I don't want to rule them out. Comments that basically say "ABGs are useless" will be completely unnecessary. Yes, many are, but there are high quality usable ones out there too. I am curious to hear more opinions about the Guilds, Tacomas, and Martins because after lots of research, I have seen opinions for each range from them being great and able to keep up and a couple of acoustic instruments, to them being not that good and overrated. If you have any experience with any of these, please let me know. Thank you!
