    i think my bass instructor had one of these, and she always said "its only acoustic", but i thought it was pretty good.....

    I guess i'd say acoustic. I don't own one but have tried them out, and it's deffintly better than other things in that price range.

    Ya, Acoustic is the only cheapo combo I've played that's worth a crap.

    +1 - great sounding, simple, and cheap -- AND as I've discussed with the poster above, its flat tone pretty much matches what Mr. Jimmy deems the "correct" sound of a vintage Ampeg fliptop. And that's just a starting point.
