I'm new as a member, but have used TB a good deal in the past. I've looked through different threads about specific resonator basses, but not much in the way of comparison. I'm looking at the Regal RD-05: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/folk-traditional-instruments/regal-rd-05-resonator-bass-guitar As well as the Ozark 3516: http://www.thomann.de/intl/ozark_3516_resonator_bass.htm I like the styling of both, as well as the price. I'm just indecisive, both have their own special qualities. I like the fact that the Ozark is acoustic/electric and fully metal. I like the Regal's more classic style and spruce top. I'm leaning more towards the Ozark currently. I guess my main question is: has anyone dealt with either of the basses, and if so, what did you think of it?
