    Takamine
    Taylor and any other acoustic basses.


    Tone?
    tone amplified?
    volume?

    Fender's acoustic basses have an awful tone in my opinion whereas the takamine (E or G series) has a nice tone

  3. How much are the taylor acoustic basses?

    I've never played an acoustic bass that I was completely happy with, I bought one of the MK's 4 string fretless ones, and it was gorgeous looking, and sounded pretty good, but it's still a laminate and will never sound any better, and doesn't sound "awesome" to begin with. If you have the extra money to throw around for something like it, a michael kelly is loud enough, gets the job done, and looks gorgeous. I found the tone to be exactly what it sounded like in the sample file.

    I took mine back because I couldn't fathom paying 700 dollars canadian for it, with my needs. I now own a taylor 314ce L7 acoustic guitar instead and have been focusing more on writing.
