    Played one at GC and almost bought it. Very nice IMO, just didn't need a bass. Pretty things.
  3. I sometimes gig an AGB 200. It is beautifully made and looks gorgeous. With flats it gets that old school thump, similar too but much better than a Hofner in my experience. Great for blues, roots music, rockabilly etc., and not a million miles away from an upright bass. Strung with rounds it can sound surprisingly modern, with plenty of tonal variation from the two pickups. It won't give you the in-the-gut punch of a Fender P you want for punk, heavy rock etc. but in certain genres it works wonderfully. It is also a pleasure to play with it's shortish scale and light weight.
  4. Thanks for the response Just checking for any issues or complaints before adding possibly the AFB 200 to the arsenal
