    Hi,

    I stumbled upon an acoustic bass guitar that I would like to buy. It's an EKO and searching the internet I noticed it probably is an BA4:

    It resembles the bass on this picture very closely. Only it doesn't have a piezo pick-up system. It's 100% acoustic.

    Does anybody know how much this bass is worth? The current owner has asked me to do a bid, but I have no clue as to how much I should bid.

    Greetings,

    Leon

    :spit: All acoustic bass guitar? I've found acoustic BGs to be irritatingly quiet, and unsuitable for even accompanying an acoustic guitar -- even when jamming. At best, they're a "practice anywhere" instrument. I can't imagine they'd be worth much, because there wouldn't be much demand for a bass guitar with no amplification system.

    the one in the pic is the older version still made in italy.

    a good price could be 150-200 Euros.

    those basses are really big and sounds huge. really.

    Yeah, I agree. People warned me about the fact that acoustic basses weren't meant to be played without amplification, but this bass must be an exception. It sounds really loud and fat. I like it a lot, so I'll probably buy it. It's a great bass to take out into the garden and play. Ideal for practice, although it isn't suitable for slappin' 'n tappin'... :bassist:[​IMG]

    isn't this bass short-scale?

    I think one of these crops up in a couple of videos by The Cure- "the caterpillar" and "In between days".
    I'm not sure if it was used on any recordings though.

    No, it isn't.
    Mmmm. I'll be watching MTV for any Cure videos from now on :)
