      Comments about Fender T-Bucket Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Bass:

      I avoided Acoustic Basses for a long time, I just did not like the sound or the size of them, however my familiy plays all acoustic and they did not care for my electric when hanging out and just messing around becasue I would drown them out. This one has just enough sound when not plugged in to be heard but not over whelming when playing with them and I was 100% shocked of the quality when I pluged into my rumble 75 about a week after getting it.

        this bass rocks i play with a pick so acousticly it sounds loud enough. Thin neck very easy to fret. Electronics are great.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Fender T-Bucket Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Bass:

          This is actually a really nice acoustic bass. It feels really sweet in my hands and plays very well. I've swapped out the original phosphor bronze strings for some La Bella nylon tapewounds, and that makes a huge difference. The Fishman electronics don't offer a huge tonal range, but I like a nice, smooth low bass sound, and this axe has that in spades. Looks really beautiful too with it's flamed top.For the price, you honestly can't beat this Bass.And if you are thinking of the Fender Kingman Bass instead,...I played it extensively over the course of a couple of weeks at [@] to make sure I knew which Fender Acoustic Bass was better, and I'm clear I made the right choice with the T-Bucket.The Kingman's J-Bass neck is familiar feeling, because I have a Marcus Miller J-Bass that I use as my main electric bass, but the Kingman is not well balanced, and has the disadvantage of feeling like a big wide Dreadnaught. The T-Bucket has a more elegant, "smaller in your lap" footprint.I am also the music minister at a large performing arts congregation here in LA, and each first Wednesday evening of the month we do an unplugged "Taizé" style service, where I usually play guitar with several other performers, but once in a while I've wanted to add bass to our evening, and this T-Bucket will fill that niche perfectly.

          Hot Rod T-Bucket Bass has the Horsepower!

          By Hambone

          from Mt. Clemens, MI

          Comments about Fender T-Bucket Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Bass:

          For the money, playability and looks, you can't go wrong with this one. Even though just recently received, I intend to put it in rotation when gigging out 2-3 weekends a month. I'm sure it will take anything I give it...I just hope my RIC doesn't get too jealeous sitting next to it in the rack!
          If your looking for a cool looking and easy playing acoustic / electric bass, this is a definite contender. The phosphorus bronze strings give the treble bite, but also the low end when amplified. Fishman electronics provide a wide range of tonal posibilities (bass, mid and treble knobs) and lots of volume control too. And to top it all off, Vince Ray touches at the headstock, sound hole and 12th fret add to the cool vibe.
          Flame maple sunburst top is flawless and beautiful. 32" scale is right on...no fret buzz anywhere up and down the neck...right out of the box! Tuners seem to be stable (but will see how they hold up over time). Fishman electronics have it all there in one neat little panel.
          How can you beat $399 for this Fender? Even though it's made in overseas (like the Squier line), the quality is there for an instrument at this price.

          The best acoustic bass I've played so far.

          By Marvin Lohman

          from Arizona

          Comments about Fender T-Bucket Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Bass:

          I was skeptic about getting this bass. I had a Dean EAB bass that I loved, but the body is huge on it and made it difficult to stand and play at the same time. I tried this one out and fell in love with the way it played. Not only does it look great, but it feels and sounds great too when plugged in. The electronics are fantastic. No loss of sound on the higher strings when plugged in. The built in tuner is really cool too. If I had one complaint, it's that the acoustic sound, while very nice, is not as loud as some acoustic basses. Most likely because of the smaller body. All in all though, I have a really cool looking and sounding bass that's easy to play. The neck resembles a Fender Jazz bass in scale and gives you relatively fast action. If you are debating on this one, just try it out. You won't be dissapointed.
