  • Pickup recommendation for acoustic/electric bass guitar

    I have an old Epiphone acoustic/electric bass and the pickup has gone out on it. It apparently wasn't designed for slap-bass.

    I've read through the information on the various guitar pickups and didn't see any mention of bass, but I think Fender and some others sell basses with Baggs pickups. Has anyone done this and can offer any advice?

    Hey Marty,
    Any Element system should work great in an acoustic bass. I really like the Element VTC, but the Stage Pro Element is a good option if you need to replace side-mounted controls.

    All of the different Element variations have a great bass response and handle feedback pretty well at higher volumes. I have the Element VTC in my Godin acoustic bass, and it sounds amazing!
