There is a sentiment held in certain corners of the bass world that acoustic bass guitars lack the efficiency and practicality to justify their cost, and that an electric bass guitar is more than equal to any task set before it, thus rendering its acoustic colleagues irrelevant.

We at Bass Player heartily disagree. A reliable acoustic presents a natural choice for intimate sets in small clubs or restaurants, and there’s also a considerable advantage to having an unplugged option for outdoor jam sessions where power sources are scarce.
