About Acoustic Bass Guitars

Acoustic bass guitars are fantastic ways to fill out 'unplugged' performances, impromptu jams and songwriting sessions. Their large bodies project lots of low end with a nice mellow tone. We have a lovely selection of bass guitars available, most of our acoustic basses are electro models with pickup systems for playing at larger venues.

We have acoustic bass guitars from Sigma, Breedlove, Taylor, Fender and many other top quality brands. Bassists no longer have to feel left out at acoustic jam nights! The Taylor GS Mini Bass is a special shorter-scale acoustic bass specially designed to be travel-friendly. This is proving to be remarkably popular with musicians on the go.

Frequently Asked Questions about Acoustic Bass Guitars

If you choose an electro acoustic bass you can certainly give it a try and see if you like the resulting sound, but acoustic basses do have a very different quality of tone to an electric bass. They naturally have more attack but less sustain so you may need some help from compression and EQ if you want to play an acoustic bass with a live electric band.
Our two best selling acoustic bass guitars are the Ibanez PCBE12MH Open Pore model and the Sigma BMC-15E. Both are high quality and provide excellent value for money.
Most acoustic basses have a 34" scale, just the same as electric basses.
