: I am wanting to learn bluegrass bass but cant really carry an upright in my ford escort!
: Are the a/e bass guitars loud enough to be heard well in an all acoustic jam setting?
: There are several on ebay I am considering lke the Epiphone El Capitan and the Fender BG29 as well as others.
: Are there any recommendations?
: Will a solid top have more volume than laminated?
: Are there any mid price models that have a less chunky neck?
Does the following link offer any assistance? The bass displayed can compete with the most resonant acoustic bass guitar (acoustically) but bowing leads to significant increase in volume. if miked, it could offer a richer sound than an amped acoustic bass guitar. Its probably not quite what you're loking for, but I hope its of some interest.
