I own this one: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/bass/...-electric-bass
It plugs in and sounds great amplified with tapewounds.

Sounded good too, but returned it cuz its humungous.
In my opinion, anything is better than phosphor bronze strings that generally come on ABG's, so flats would probably work, but tapewounds are the best ABG strings, in my opinion.
But, if you really want a great ABG that sounds awesome and mixes really well with acoustic sets, or any style really, nothing beats the ubass.
This is bluegrass, but all acoustic instruments: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PjpXrXFI8c
