    If I were going to purchase one of these two acoustics, which one should I purchase? Has anyone had the Johnson and had any problems? The price sure seems good here
    http://www.surfcitymusic.com/fretted/elec_bass_2.html I live in Rural oklahoma and the only local music store says they can get one that I want to try but they only had an applause base. Not thrilled with the new age body on that one. Also what about buying an acoustic online since I can't play in cyberspace to see what I'm getting upfront?
  2. That's a tough call! Acoustic instruments are more temper mental then your average electric bass.
