It seems the bloom is off the rose when it comes to acoustic basses. Had a Washburn acoustic bass and a Godin semi-acoustic bass in the past, but returned to solidbodies. Few of them have very much acoustic volume for jamming or gigging, though the expensive luthier made ones seemed okay for home or studio. Since plugging in was inevitable (for me) I gave them up. But, Taylor, Martin, Guild, have/had nice ones..I'd shop used if I wanted one now, there have to be lots out there collecting dust.

Peace, Mooh.

+1. I shopped for one but didn't figure I'd have enough volume to keep up with a couple of acoustic guitars.
