Default Re: Acoustic Bass Guitar

I remember when I went to New York earlier this year I was in a Mexican restaurant there was a live Mariachi band walking around. The bass player had an acoustic bass with a Giant body that was audible but it was hard to hear if he was more than 15 feet away. I've only messed with one of them (I'm no bassist but who doesn't like to noodle with an instrument when they get the chance?). I'd say go electric or a pickup; my dad plays a violin with a pickup at all of his gigs and if you buy a decent one it will carry the tone very well. For all intensive purposes the acoustic bass will just plain be too quiet.
