I few months ago I bought an Olympia acoustic/electric bass from a luthier I know. I'm just curious who all out there plays on or has an acoustic/electric bass and what they think. I personally like it because you don't have to hook it up to an amp every time you want to play it. But it doesn't have quite as rough of a sound as many just-electric basses do. It's also HUGE, and the neck is way long. But it's strings fit the same as the do on my other bass.
