    The loudest ABG around. Works for sessions without amp - well .. ;-)

    Solid spruce top. Bolt on neck.

    Had the top refinished and a small crack on the back repaired by a German luthier (Eyb guitars in Stuttgart) - does not really look like a pro-job: new finish builds cracks but no biggie.

    including original case.

    800 Euros

      How could I have forgotten that one ? All the basses I described are on hand here but my Tacoma is long gone. It’s everything that Schlo says that it is.

      Unfortunately it was overly sensitive to noise from AC mains, and we played in a lotta old buildings with crappy AC current. Really wish I coulda kept it. Great ax !

      I have its cheap, made-in-Asia version "Olympia by Tacoma", and it suffers from the same issue. It doesn't have the solid wood top like the Thunderchief, but it's very sensitive to AC noise, just like its more expensive cousine. :)

      Crappy AC mains current is usually a North American problem. Most of the rest of the world uses 240 volts, much more dangerous than our 120v. The back feed on the neutral side and improper phasing and other sloppiness that we routinely tolerate as a mere nuisance would be actually deadly in 240v countries and thus is a relatively rare situation, while here it’s endemic.

      When I bought the Tacoma in a shop in a modern building with clean AC, it sounded perfect. I live in a 150 yrs old former mansion home, 20 rooms sloppily divided into 5 apartments, and crudely “maintained” by nonprofessional workers. Many of our city venues are more like my old house than like the newer building where the Guitar Center is located.
