    Thanks to all! I had forgotten about the cello option! I'd never heard of the resonator bass!

    recommend me an acoustic bass

    Then my wife can thumb along with my fiddle tunes on the mandolin.

    Tacoma (no longer made); Martin (budget?); Breedlove, etc.?

    Re: Flatiron

    I think Pheff has it right. I think it was 1997 when they moved to the new Nashville numbering system.

    Either that or it was made in China?
