Re: Acoustic Bass Guitar
To be honest, they lack definition and cut in an acoustic situation, unless you play them with a pick. I guess a short scale may cut more as well due to an harmonic emphasis on the upper frequencies, but really I would advise you to play an electric bass. We have a few acoustic basses in college, but we nearly always end up using the electric ones anyway. When you're competing with two guitars, which have a lot of frequency crossover with a bass you're not going to be heard.
