    What is a good electro acoustic bass around 500-1000$?

    I don't know many and have only encountered the Fender ones and some cheap models at various stores

    I'm yet to come across a good acoustic bass. They all sound too much like guitars to my ears. maybe your better off getting a cheaper chinese made URB. They sound MUCH better than most acoustics.

    I've tried a few abg so far (and have one), and while some do lack low end and have too much highs, I've found much variaton among them.
    And an URB is a pita to carry on public transport... if that's a consideration
