    I own an Oscar Schmidt acoustic. Decent instrument, nothing more. As is the case with most acoustic electrics, it really doesn't produce much volume unplugged.

    Hmmm...darn, I wish I had more info for you. I don't have any experience with Oscar Schmidt outside of the one I own. Mine is very well made. I bought it used about 10 years ago and it looks and sounds just as good as the day I bought it. Hopefully someone else can jump in and help.

    Well I don't know much about an Oscar Schmidt bass, but my first bass (that I still have) was a low end Washburn and it's a pretty solid bass for what it is. For some reason Washburns have kind of a bad rep for quality control from what I see here, but the 2 I have are very solid and well built instruments. The local shop here is a dealer that moves a lot of them and they seem to be pretty good. I don't know if the OS Washburns are the same though.
