I understand BG29 has been discontinued. Of current models, which is closest to BG29?
I am looking for an acoustic bass and found a used BG29. I found few reviews of BG29, but they were not very helpful. Any opinions out there?
What would be a reasonable price for one in decent condition?

I had a BG29 for a short time. My thoughts?

It was comfortable to play, love the short scale.

But it didn't have good projection when played acoustically.

Even when plugged in it seemed pretty thin.

Like my other Fenders it stayed in tune reliably, no issue with using it to gig with.

I paid $200 for it used, and it came with a nice hardshell case. I don't believe the case was original but it worked well.

For the acoustic band I play in / gig with, I sold the BG29 and acquired a Hofner Club Series Ignition bass. Not sure if I'm supposed to say that here, :x
