  1. Greetings folks;

    anybody ever played an Allan Chao Bass?

    i've searched the web and forums for it without much success.

    And Yes, reason for asking is i'm shopping, and some guy sells one of these (db15 it seems) with a hardcase for not that much.

    One thing that motivated me to ask tho: it seems to be laminated but they only state details that I would naively attach to carved basses. must be dreaming.

    anyway; thanks and smile to the growling sound.

    I've never heard of them... dyed maple fingerboards are a headache, though.
