When you play the Bass Guitar chord it is longer than the acoustic guitar chord and the acoustic is for country or rock songs

There are several differences between electric bass and an acoustic guitar. A bass guitar has only four strings, which are thicker, while an acoustic guitar has thinner strings and has six of them.

Bass: 4 strings (tuned very low) Acoustic: 5 srtings (tuned much higher) Bass: ususally plays one note at a time Acoustic: usually plays several notes (chords) at a time

Acoustic guitars have six strings and elect. basses have 4 strings, more frets and the thinnest string on a bass is just slightly thinner than the thickest string on the acoustic

First of all, a "bass-guitar" is not a "bass-guitar" it's a electric bass. To tell the difference between a electric bass and a guitar is the electric bass has a lower sound to fit into the beat and the guitar has a higher pitch sound, even a acoustic guitar.

You see, acoustic guitars can make magical rainbow forces that can fight evil! Bass guitars? They don't do anything.

An acoustic bass, also known as an acoustic bass guitar, is a variety of bass guitar played without electric amplification, generally as accompaniment to an acoustic guitar.

I don't know the difference exactly but my guess is that one is more accurate or produces a more exact sound due to the precision in the title but my main subject is electric guitars, not bass however, bass includes acoustic bass, electric bass (standard bass), fretless bass, any other bass. Hope it helps ;-P

Bass strings are MUCH MUCH thicker. They use more metal to make and are also harder to make.

Yes, there are special acoustic bass guitar strings for acoustic bass guitars.

They are the exact same instrument in all respects except one: the body. The body of an electric bass is often solid wood and slender, while an acoustic bass guitar is bulky and hollow like an acoustic guitar's.

The main difference between acoustic and acoustic electric guitars is that acoustic electric guitars have a pickup installed in them so that they can be played with an amplifier. Also, they can be used to play many genres of music, while acoustic has mostly low tones.

If you can think of a type of music you can play it on bass. Everything uses bass, even acoustic music can use acoustic bass. Its universal

At this time, I believe that Tobias haven't ever made an acoustic bass.

The bass guitar has 4 strings and a deeper sound, where as the acoustic has 6 strings.

Acoustic bass guitars are hollow-bodied wooden instruments with four strings. They look and sound similar to an acoustic guitar, except the bass is larger. Many have pickups so that they can be amplified, in which case they are sometimes called acoustic-electric. An electric bass guitar is also usually four-stringed, although five, six, and eight-stringed basses are sometimes played, but features a solid slab body and requires an amp and speaker similar to electric guitars.

Much like an electo/acoustic guitar. This is simply and acoustic bass with a pickup in it. This allows you to use it for small acoustic gigs but when more volume is needed you can easily plug it in and ramp it up!

An Electric Acoustic Guitar is an acoustic guitar with the addition of a pickup or transducer that enables plugging it in to an amplifier. Type your answer here...

The electric bass. Probably the electric bass ^ Pfft. I wish. But the acoustic guitar is a LOT more popular than the electric bass. Many people have no idea what a bass guitar is!

An acoustic-electric guitar has a pickup. You are able to play it without an amp, as well as with one.

an acoustic guitar usually has steel strings and a classical acoustic has nylon classical strings... two different sounds...

The is really only one major difference between an acoustic and an electrical behind the ear hearing aid. With an electrical version, the sound is transmitted by a wire, rather than by a tube, as it is in the acoustic version.
