    I played a Talk, it wasn't that bad, I might have gotten it, but I had my eye on the Martin (which I bought, and the Talk they had at Guitar Center had a huge dent in it)...

    Is that the acoustic/electric one? I played a few at GC the other day, but I couldn't find one that played loud enough, and it lost most of the acoustic sound when plugged in. I'm still looking around for one I like.
  6. Right on!!! I have always wanted an accoustic bass but could never justify taking the plunge.Let us know how she plays plugged/unplugged,k? :D

    Congrats again! :)
  7. Word up Staindfan10! ABGs are very special in the bass world, and their owners are special people!
    Intellegent enough to choose bass; artistic enough to coax sound out of a delicate wooden box.

    Enjoy that acoustic!

    It's weird. He always does that.

    Do a search for Staindfan10, and look at every thread that he's ever started.

    IIRC, he doesn't come back to any of them.
