    Can you still Slap these type of basses? If so how does it sound any body have like a soundclip?

    I am thinking of purchasing one, cause we might do some unplugged gigging one day. if anybody with a wealth of knowledge on these instruments is around here can you give me any quick tips and stuff on them since i dont know like anything about them?

    Me and my guitarist friend are thinking of doing a gig just us two him with his acoustic and me with an acoustic bass since our drummer keyboardist and other guitarist are like so lazy we want to do some duet stuff will it work you think?? lol... I ask dumb questions...

    I attempted it on my cheapie $230 Brownsville and it actually sounded pretty good. It was actually better than it is on a couple of my electrics.
