: I'm a classical guitarist who has just recently fell in love with
: the acoustic bass. I have noticed that the instrument has never been utilized
: in classical music. Am I right? Has anyone ever seen classical music notation
: for the acoustic bass?

I've never seen it, Bill, but I do have an old copy of a book and cassette (somewhere) with the title something along the lines of "JS Bach the Electric Bass" that had some Bach pieces notated for electric. But as far as the 'real thing' -- classical music composed for electric bass -- maybe in some avant garde piece, but I don't know of any.
