Acoustic Bass Guitar
An acoustic bass guitar can solve the problem of storing and travelling with a large bass fiddle. They are tuned the same as a bass fiddle and an electric bass guitar, and have frets as a regular guitar. The biggest disadvantage of an acoustic bass guitar is that they do not develop very much volume since the low frequencies produced by the strings do have have a large enough space in which to develop and amplify as in a bass violin. For that reason, nearly all acoustic bass guitars are equipped with a built in pickup for easy amplification.
