    Is it better to get a full electric or a acoustic/electric bass?

    Canada!
    Depends what you want to do and in what situation you plan to do it.
    What sort of stuff are you playing?
    What gear do you have already?
    Where do you plan to play?

    Pure electric is more usable. An acoustic/electric is more of a niche instrument. I use both an acoustic 4 string and a fretless electric in similar environments and don't prefer either. For the future rock/jazz stuff an electric will be more useful.
