Tacoma Thunderchief Bass

Well, it's a "big-un" all right! Tacoma has come up with a winner here. Although it's in the lower price range for an American made acoustic bass, it has impressive acoustic volume and tone. There's virtually no decoration on this fellow, and the finish is minimal - a good way to keep the cost down without compromising performance. Good fretting, a comfortable neck, and Fishman electronics round out the package.
