Acoustic Bass Guitar

When it comes to the acoustic bass guitar, brands such as Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, and Martin all make excellent instruments.

Settling on the right acoustic bass guitar is never an easy decision, as there are so many different kinds out there, it can be difficult to find just the right model with the perfect sound.  But there are plenty of ways that you can make  the search easier, by just knowing what to look for.  The first thing that you’re going to find, and that’s fairly obvious, is that not every single acoustic bass guitar is created equally, and there are going to be problems from model to model, that can dampen your experience.  You want to find the right combination between comfort, sound quality, and price, so that you can get the perfect guitar for any time you’re looking to jam, no amplifier required.

When you’re looking for the right type of acoustic bass guitar, you’re going to find that you actually have a lot of options out there.  First you want to concentrate upon whether or not you want to go with those that feature five strings or four, according to your play style. But what’s more, you also want to think about the body, so that you can find the right type of model to ensure it’s going to pick up a lot of the sound.  For that you have to ensure it features a really solid hard wood, so that there aren’t too many reverberations.  Bass causes a lot of vibrations, and you have to ensure you have a wood that can handle what your bass is going to be putting out, without compromising sound.

What’s more you want to choose between acoustic bass guitars that are purely acoustic, or those that also have electrical aspects as well.  What you’re going to find is that many acoustic guitars are designed with electrical guts implanted inside, so that you can plug them into an amplifier.  This way, you can boost the rich harmonies that only acoustic construction can create, so that you’re able to play a live show, or even just play louder than you might be able to otherwise.  This can be an important factor in deciding on the right type of bass for you.

But of course, you also need to think about the brand that you’re looking to buy your acoustic bass guitar from, so that you can ensure it has the quality you want, but also the affordability you expect.  As a beginner you don’t need to go with anything amazing, and you can get by with the cheaper Dean or even New Electric models.  But when you’re looking for something high end that only a master would touch, you want to go with something like Fender or Ibanez which are synonymous with quality.

In looking for the right type of acoustic bass guitar, you also want to ensure that you’re shopping in the right place where you can find the best options.  That means you’re going to want to go looking at a store like Guitar Center, or even a store like Best Buy that has plenty of options for great guitars.
