I have been playing the bass for about a year and have been casually playing with some friends. I have recently been looking into acoustic/electrics because we tend to play outdoors a lot at small gatherings and whatnot. Everything I have looked at has not put out much noise... unless I want to pay over $1000. Any suggestions for a brand or type of acoustic/electric that might put out a good amount of noise for not so high of a price??? I would be all for purchasing a used instrument on ebay or something like that also.. please give me suggestions... thankyou.
