    I have the opportunity to buy an acoustic 118 bass combo for the grand total of $150. Looks to be in good shape and according to the seller barely used.

    Was looking for any more info on this amp and if its a good price.

    Thanks. :)

    Based on the limited description, Im not sure what you're looking at - but - go to this site where there's lot of information, forums etc. - you can probably find some of what your looking for. IMO, even if it has issues, the price is right. Look here---acoustic.homeunix.net--- :cool:

    I have a 118 ( sorta on loan at the moment but whatever...) and it's a nice little amp but I found it to be a little too big for small stuff (physically) and not quite big enough for larger stuff (mid sized gigs). It's not the most versatile amp tonally but it has a good basic Acoustic sound. I've recorded with it and it works very nice for getting some air into my sound. To me, $150 is a little high unless it's in really good shape.

    I'd basically be using this as a bedroom practice amp/night stand.

    I'm just looking for something that sounds good, won't break, and isn't too terribly expensive.

    The amp is a bit dusty, but still pretty new looking.

    It'll work prefect for you. It's the perfect height for a clock radio to sit on. Offer him a hundred bucks, let him talk you up to $125 and call it a deal.
