    it's been a while that i'm looking for an acoustic basse ... I had an very limited budget so i took the cheapest i found ... Don't blame me for that, it sounds sweet ....
    Finally i got it ! It's a motion acousitc with 4Eq preamp.

    Great! I've found having an ABG around the house is very liberating for practice and casual play, and it's perfect for sedate acoustic jams with a guitarist. Have fun!
     
  3. Sweet! Looks great

    If you don't mind me asking, what did it cost you and where did you get it?

    I'm in a similar situation where I'm GASsin for an acoustic, but have limited fundage for one.

  10. Hey Icks!

    I have been wanting a Acoustic bass for some time now and since I didn't want to spend a lot of money I orderd a Motion acoustic bass! (I get it on Tuesday), I got one with a naturel finish, and only have to pay 249 euro :D . How do you like yours? how does it sound??

    the strings sux, but the bass keeps a nice sound, it's loud enought to play with an acoustic guitar, if you play with a pick you won't have problem with 2 guitars...
    I really like my acoustic ..... Sustain are great !
     
  12. Sweet! nice accustic bass.
