: Is there any reason why I should buy an upright as opposed to a fretless Acoustic Bass. I want to expand from just playing my P-bass. I will always be playing with a combo and I will always be "plugged in". Is the sound that much different even though I'll be amplified. Uprights are so expensive and I'll need to learn to play it. Other than the "look" (which I love) do I need an upright to play the blues and folk or can I get away with an Acoustic Bass?
They are different instruments and SOUND different. Why do you feel an acoustic bass guitar will help you "expand" your playing? What kind of sound are you going for? The physical approach to the upright is substantially different from the bass guitar, are you serious enough about it to make that investment of time?
