Just ordered one of these D’Angelico acoustic basses. They get positive reviews and look/sound nice. Anyone here tried one?

that's the one thing they haven't brought to NAMM in the last couple of years. Unless of course I missed stumbling over one :lol:
If it's built anything like their other acoustic instruments you'll be pleased when it arrives!

Yeah I have pretty good expectations. Not a big ABG guy since they really don’t truly work acoustically but I’ve been wanting to try one of these for a minute now.

May I be rude enough to ask how much they are asking for it?

It sounds really nice and looks a lot better than most acoustic basses I've seen around.
Congrats, it looks like a great + fun bass!

The cheaper version sounded better than the $1000 version in the demo vids. I was pretty psyched about that.

Just wondering. Why is tuned ABG and what is the other string tuned to?

Just got the bass. It’s really damn nice. Needed a little truss rod tweak, and I dropped it off to have the bridge saddle cut down some. That action was sky high, man. But the quality is really there. Fishman pre sounds nice so far too!

Great to hear!
This one would look good at the Lefty Bass Photo Gallery! :)
