    As far as I can tell the differences are:

    10C has mahogany back and sides, while 28C has figured maple back and sides.
    10C has rosewood fingerboard -- 28C has ebony.
    28C has binding on neck.
    28C has burst finish.

    28C is about $750 or so more than the 10C.

    I haven't heard the 28C line. I have a 105C, which is the five string version, with the Fishman E4 pickup. I absolutely love it; the rosewood fingerboard is gorgeous and the construction is exceptional throughout.

    Personally, I can't see spending the extra $$$ on the 28C. If it were me, I'd rather get the 10C, then spend the $700 I saved on a gently used Godin A4 which would be a better choice (almost no feedback) for amplified situations. :D

    Maybe the 28C is an amazing instrument, but I'm already blown away by my 105C, and the cost difference is not negligible. By the way, my Tacoma came with an incredible hard shell case -- the best HSC I've ever seen for a bass.
