This is a good bass to practice with and jam along with acoustic guitars. Its' has 2 main flaws, the saddle and the electronics. It started out with fret buzz which didn't disappear completely with a neck adjustment. I had to make a saddle was tallerto make it completely disappear. Also it when plugged in it wouldn't pick up all the strings. If you get a chance try out a Michael Kelly or a Brownsville Acoustic Bass. I can't vouche for the electronics but unplugged the Michael Kelly sound great and I can tell it is made to sound like a bass. Best advice is to play one of each and see how much fret buzz there is and compare the saddle & bridge sizes. Good luck.
