Dean Playmate EABC5 Electric Acoustic Bass Guitar

For my acoustic gigs, I use a Dean Playmate Electric Acoustic 5-string bass guitar. It has a piezo pickup and a passive pre-amp so it is quite versatile regarding volume levels.

Those are Asian made and very inexpensive. Nothing to rave about but it serves me well for my gigging purposes.

The only mod I put in was to use a set of Rotosound "Piano String Design"  strings. The wrapping on PSD strings start after the core clears the saddle, this makes for better vibration of the string and produces a clear bass tone.
