: Which of these basses is the best/loudest:

Interesting question - this link may have some (rather dissapointing) answers:

: If you know other good ABG, please let me know.

There are two you didn't mention. I've played an Epiphone "El Camino" 5-string fretless ABG (Acoustic Bass Guitar, or "Fred" as Mr. Cumpinano calls it), and have considered buying one, but I also want to know what else is out there. I could probably live with a four-string ABG (and it would probably not cave in as quickly as a 5-string), but I definitely want fretless for the sound, even if I don't hit the notes exactly right [cringe]. I've heard that Taylor's (if I remember right it was Taylor) ABG is louder than most, and that might make it acceptable for unamplified jamming with others.
