Comments about Breedlove Passport Acoustic-Electric Bass:
I've been playing bass professionally for 35 years but never owned an acoustic bass, so I did my research and decided to go for one. Equipped with the knowledge of the quality of Breedlove guitars, I played the others first. I spent the entire afternoon "auditioning" different acoustic basses. Ibanez, Washburn, Dean, Kala, Fender, Alvarez, blah blah. Not willing to spend 1500 bucks, I found and played the Breedlove Passport. It took all of 10 seconds to decide on my choice. Hands down, the craftsmanship, tone and feel/playability was far superior to any of the above mentioned basses - and quite a bargain at $500. I realize that this bass is crafted in Korea, so I meticulously went over it with an eagle eye searching for any indication of blemishes or defects in workmanship but found none. This bass is well-built with the feel and sound an acoustic bass should have. Unlike the Fender Kingman, the tone controls and built-in tuner are solid and immediately responsive. Thanks Breedlove, for making a quality acoustic bass that the regular guy can afford!
