    Just curious if anyone's owned or played much with any of these. There's one on ebay I'm considering going after. Quick! I've got 30 minutes!! Thanks.

    I used to own an Applause acoustic 4 string bass, it sounded decent when it was unplugged, but when ran thru an amp, it took alot to get it loud, id set the amps gains up near max and had to set the volume to near max to get it loud enough, and then it was barely loud enough.

    on the plus side, they do have a great feeling neck


    ive only played an ovaition unplugged, but she played great and had a very nice acoustic tone, cant tell ya how it sounds thru an amp tho sorry
