    What's the best value out there today for an acoustic/electric bass (guitar style, not upright), at the $400 price point?

    Looking for a 4-string, unlined fretless w/34-inch scale.

    Thanks in advance!

    Ibanez makes a great acoustic bass, for around 450. Note that you'll need amplification no matter what acoustic bass you get. Even jamming with one single unplugged acoustic guitar, you'll be buried.
  3. the only acoustic bass that has ever sounded good to me was a breedlove. the ibanez aint bad. i borrowed one for while and rickenboogie is right, one acoustic guitar will bury you. we had 3 acoustics a banjo and a djembe. i was just out there for finger excersizes because nobody includin myself could hear me.
