I've been wanting to try one of these since I found out they exist. Very cool looking ABG. Not sure how they sound but I'll give it a shot. I've only seen one lefty for sale awhile back and didn't have the funds. If anyone has one they would part with or know of one please let me know.

Thanks

Pat

I don't know of any available right now, but they sound good to me!

(This is an AB-10.)

Heck yeah! Very slick. Does the body look narrower than other ABGs or is it just me? I like it. I want one mainly for unplugged solo home use and trying to pretend I know how to write songs.

I would say it definitely looks narrower than my Dean EABC, which is a beast, but it looks about on par with my old Fender CB-100CE.

I think you're on the right track. There's nothing better for noodling.

The 2nd video sounds good, has a real fretless sound to it. The 1st video has an upright sound to it... just proves that it's all in the fingers....

I have a AB20 with the 3 band equalizer I got in '95, has a neat sound.

I'd consider selling mine if someone was interested.
