    Re: recommend me an acoustic bass

    Most acoustic amps won’t do a bass properly, see Phil Jones Bass website. They’re not designed for the lower frequencies and fart out completely. Fact, it’s not difficult to blow your speakers. I was...

    Just for posterity and folks who have no idea what the term ‘slab’ really means in the guitar world.. The above pictured 60’s pbass wouldn’t be considered a ‘slab’ because it has body cuts and...
