    alrighty...i've made a few threads concerning these basses, but this is the final one...i'm deciding between two acoustic basses...and i need opinions on them...one of the main things i'm looking for is loud unplugged....alrighty....here they are (oh, and by the way, i've managed to find the ibanez for 150 euros, so the prices are the same for me)

    the ibanez


    the harly benton

    the harley benton seems bigger, so i would think that it is louder unplugged...but the ibanez is a good name brand...so...what do you guys think?

    The Ibanez AEB10 is among the worst of the ABG's for acoustic tone, I've played several as they are in every shop around here.
    The Benton, I don't know. It appears to be of regular scale length, and a bigger body, so yeah it should make a bigger sound.
    Is it really impossible for you to take a jaunt and play a few ABG's in person?
