Dean Playmate EABC5 Electric Acoustic Bass Guitar
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
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.
