  16. I've been playing an Ibanez Acoustic Bass for about a month now. So far I'm loving it, and it sounds great plugged in also. It's nice to be able to come home (I work nights), and play it quietly in the front room, then plug it in to the amp and play with some volume other times. (Ibanez Bass Guitars are pretty quiet as far as bass guitars go).
