I was contacted by a family in my area who is looking for a bass for their 7 year old. Even though they are in my region, they actually found me through an online search. [very pleasing] They had thoughts of an acoustic. Through searching online, they started considering the Gold Tone MBass. Once I heard he was 7, this is what I recommended: What do you think? Would you agree or disagree? Let's help them find something affordable and comfortable for their 7 year old. [keeping in mind they were inclined to have an acoustic.] Thanks.
