Did this video help you?

Carl Azuz: Violent femmes uses acoustic and the bass is amazing

Mishak Heyman: I don't have one, but I'm going to buy one, I'd probably but it so I can take it to the beach, take it to the park etc, something I can just pick up and play when I feel like jammin but not like taking out the amp

eoin smith: VERB Surmise

no object, usually with clause Suppose that something is true without having evidence to confirm it.
‘he surmised that something must be wrong’
with direct speech ‘‘I don't think they're locals,’ she surmised’

Rick Steigers: I liked that. I'm probably gonna venture down to Guildford to buy that Sigma if that's ok with you? I need something to write basslines on for my own song projects and this fits the bill.

Joshua Senic: Thanks for making this video. I agree that acoustic bass does not get enough love, and that acoustic bass isn't suitable for many kinds of gigs. However, if your band is offered an intimate acoustic gig, an acoustic bass is a great tool to have in your tool kit.

Maybe it's just me?? On the video, the Ibanez sounded the best. Cheap laminated bass guitar came across as richer and more full than the Fender or Martin to me. Anyway, thanks again. Love the All About The Bass videos.

OmariLiveHD: I'd personally use them for Jazz. More specifically a fretless with nylon or flatwound wound strings

Andy Lee: The playing with the acoustic guitar sounded really cool lots more low end with the acoustic bass

Kevin M Gonyo: I'm looking for an acoustic bass, so I like this video!

John Smith: Can any1 tell me the song they played at the start cause i hear it all the time but i dont know what it is.

chaz kujak: OMG he plays that base really well - Will I ever get to that level?

trimcrew: As a bass player I found this video very inspiring and informative! Keep making bass videos!

Paul Summerside: Ironically the best sounding preamp and bass combination came from the Sigma and the Ibanez where the worst was to my ears listening to the demo the Fender.

I have one of the more expensive Ibanez acoustic basses. So this simply confirms my choice as a good one at the time.

Having used acoustic / electro-acoustic basses for a little while on top of standard electrical basses. There not only is a place for acoustic basses I at several points wanted to shout at the screen whilst listening to Lee's opinions upon the subject.
Sorry Lee. Generally love your reviews, but took exception to some of the remarks.

rockhard: the acoustic bass guitar is the stupidest thing ever invented
totally pointless and useless every other kind of bass sounds better,An electric bass can do everything better a bass fiddle sounds a billion times better
a freaking tuba sounds better, a bass clarinet is more useful
the acoustic bass guitar is total bullcrap
NO BODY HAS EVER PLAYED ANYTHING WORTH crap ON ONE
EVERYBODY BANGS OUT HARMONICS ON THEM BECAUSE YOU CANT HEAR THE FUNDAMENTAL
YOU WILL NEVER HEAR THE FUNDAMENTAL
THE BODY IS NOT BIG ENOUGH, IT WILL NEVER EVER WORK
BECAUSE THE IDEA IS PLAINLY STUPID
ABJECTLY UTTERLY COMPLETELY AND UNALTERABLY
STUPID,
THIS VIDEO IS GREAT BECAUSE IT PROVES THE POINT, THESE GUYS ARE IN THE BUSINESS OF SELLING GUITARS AND THEY CAN'T COME UP WITH A PLAUSIBLE JUSTIFICATION FOR BUYING ONE OF THESE MONSTROSITIES.
THEY SHOULD BE CONGRATULATED FOR THEIR HONESTY

medicine man: 👍 good vid cheers guys

Mick Kennedy: ELECTRO-Acoustic Basses -- and a laminate top would be disastrous in a real Acoustic bass, it would sound feeble, gutless, not worth playing.

Malicious Megan: Okay I've owned 3 acoustic basses over the years and here is my two cents about it. It really depends on your what you intend to play and the style of music. I actually LOVE acoustic basses and think they are simply great live and in the studio. I like playing them with a pick and actually, they really complement an acoustic guitar, provided you use a mic/ amp it up. You might say, "they're quiet unplugged and if you plug them in you might as well go for an electric". No. Plugged in, many acoustics like some Ibanez and Fenders have a unique boxy tone to them which personally suits what I like to play and great for some genres. The problem I find with videos about "should I get an acoustic bass" are that they assume ALL bassists play the same way, and want to use an acoustic the same way as an electric. You wouldn't expect a metal shredder to expect the same out of a Elvis Fender Kingman acoustic would you? Same applies to acoustic basses. I stand by them, great instruments

Yanto2013: Those 'Chordy things' he is playing are by Stanley Clarke - One of the Bass Masters from the 70's & 80' (He played in Return To Forever). He should at least cite the composer instead of trying to make out he wrote it. Also the guy on the left is soooooooo Camp.

questionable content: violent femmes bassist used an acoustic with a pick.

Lucas Salley: The Violent Femmes?

ajofadams: Nathan is useless! He's a great player, but he looks at that fender like it's a piece of crap, and then says, "yeah, it's alright, it's nice!" If it's crap, tell us it's crap dude!! And for the love of god stop hitting the open harmonics to make it sound "fancy"!

Honestly, I'd prefer Rob and the captain did the bass videos too! The other Lee's even worse than Nathan!!
