    If you are talking about an acoustic bass guitar, and plan on playing it to accompany other musicians, it needs to be amplified. Get one with a built in pickup and preamp.

    If you can afford one, Dave Maize makes an incredible acoustic bass guitar - beautiful too, and he's a smart wood type.
