One of the most recognized instruments worldwide, the fretted acoustic bass has left more than a mark on music of all genres. Perfect for practice, stage or studio, acoustic bass guitars are perfect for musicians of all skill levels, which is why their popularity has only increased. So whether you're looking for your first guitar, on an upgrade on an old favorite, you've come to the right place. If you're just picking up a fretted acoustic bass for the first time, there are a few things you should think about to help narrow down your options. The first thing you're probably thinking is do I need a fretted guitar? Frets, generally made from metal, make learning finger position a lot easier as it gives you a visual cue while you play. If you're playing an acoustic bass guitar, they also provide a bit more sustain while you play, adding to the overall volume. No matter now experienced you are, frets are a great aid.

The next thing you're going to notice while browsing the selection here are acoustic and acoustic-electric options. If you're looking to plug in at all, to pedals, an amp, or computer, an acoustic-electric guitar is a must-have. On the other hand, if you're looking for a warmer, more intimate experience, you may want to go with a purely acoustic bass. It completely comes down to personal preference, but once you start playing you'll know which option is best for you. Another thing you'll want to take a look at is string count. With four to six strings on average, acoustic bass guitars with more strings provide a wider range of notes, while fewer strings make them easier to play. Striking a balance is key as you progress as a musician. One final thing to take into consideration is the material used to construct your guitar. Different woods produce different tones, so looking at the make of your guitar should be something you definitely take into account. Woods like spruce and rosewood give you a lower end, while other woods like mahogany and walnut give you more of a warmer midrange. Depending on what you're specifically looking for, there is a make for you. After looking at all the options available to you here, in the end the fretted acoustic bass you choose should be the one that makes the strongest impression to you. After that, all you need to do is play.
