    Hey! Lets show off our awesome acoustics.:bassist:

    Mine is a TangleWood Tab1-CE, and is currently serving as my main bass guitar.

    That is a really cool looking bass. What model is it?
  5. My Warwick-Rockbass Alien 6 hasn't arrived yet, but tentatively scheduled for delivery March 2013...

    I have been looking for the 6 string Warwick acoustic bass for a while! How much is it? Can you tell me how loud it is when you get it?:)

    The Washburn wasn't loud enough for acoustic sessions so I made the Kick Ass'd Bass.
  10. I ordered mine from Bass Alien. Their price was $999 but during November, there was a 15% sale, bringing my price down to $765.

    If you check the Warwick channel on YouTube, look for a few demonstrations by Andy Irvine. He did demos both plugged in and acoustically, although his tests were with the 5-string model. He tested both the Warwick and Rockbass models.

    My Martin BC40--not the loudest ABG I've played, but beautifully made and good sounding.

    Would love to hear the KAB. It doesn't look too comfortable though. Or perhaps I should phrase it... ergonomically pleasing?

    I play it sitting down but have played standing with it on the arm of a chair. I sit with my left leg in the drum.


    It's not too uncomfortable to sit with it propped against my left knee.


  16. Wow; that's one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time! A bass essentially made from a bass drum.
  17. Hello my subsonic comrades,

    My acoustics:

    Left: Ashbury fretless, bought in 2007. Strung with Rotosound Phosphor Bronze.

    Right: Gremlin, bought in 2003. Strung with GHS Phosphor Bronze.

  18. Wow, that's impressive. What kind of tone do you get out of the Kick Ass Bass? Does it sound like it looks, -- meaning sort of bass-banjo-like? Is it loud enough to compete with 3 drunk guitar players and a fiddle? You may be on to something there... =))

    Ibanez AEB5E.

    Plays and sounds great. :) Currently my only playable bass!
