That's how my buddies use them. Nice for playing around with, watching TV or whatever. With one gentle guitar player, you might get by.Do any of you guys use them acoustically? I bought one (Ibanez) for that reason and found that it just can't keep up with an acoustic guitar, volume wise.
So to have to amplify it makes it seem kind of useless unless you want that particular tone? Which seems sort of like a 3rd type of tone as it's not like an electric, but not like a stand-up either.
So I figured I'd use it for practicing, but it's not very comfortable (waaah ) and I can hear the electric well enough unplugged for practice if need be.
Just interested in hearing the merits of these acoustic basses, as for the use mine gets I might as well sell it.
This is what keeps me from getting one.But in a jam with a few acoustic guitars, the bass needs to be plugged in to a small amp.
