Finally an acoustic bass that you can actually hear without plugging it in. The side port on the top projects the deep tones from the body directly to the player while the additional front port shoots the low frequencies towards the audience. The mids and highs dance off of the front soundboard for a sound that has to be heard to be believed. When plugged in, it keeps the same natural tone with much less feedback than other acoustic electric basses. Plays easy. Looks great!
Offering a combination of traditional materials and high-tech design, this 4-string acoustic-electric bass guitar from Boulder Creek (model EBR3-N4) enables you to hear your playing without plugging it in. The side port on the top projects the deep tones from the body directly to the player while the additional front port shoots the low frequencies towards the audience. When plugged in, it keeps the same natural tone with much less feedback than other acoustic electric basses.
All Boulder Creek guitars feature solid tops, solid backs, and laminated sides for strength and durability. The EBR3-N4 uses Boulder Creek's Solitaire body, which employs the Suspended Bracing System (SBS). A departure from the traditional X-brace, the SBS employs a pair of parallel aluminum braces that are anchored at three points under the top, but are otherwise suspended like a pair of towel racks. This allows the top to vibrate more freely, improving projection. The area of the top is also greater, with a soundhole the size of half-dollar and a large oval port on the side, dramatically improving bass response.
It's also equipped with the AB4-T Active Balanced Acoustic System with on-board tuner. The specially designed cable-type saddle transducer reduces the "clunk" that is inherent in traditional piezo pickup systems. The AB4-T System also feature both balanced and unbalanced outputs for maximum signal and noise reduction in both stage and studio applications.

Top Customer Reviews
This beautiful guitar has excellent craftsmanship and I find the natural finish very attractive. I really can not say enough good things about this bass it truly is an addictive joy to play. I love it!
It took three months for the neck to acclimate to the humidity of my locale, two strings would buzz. (During the wait period, I loosened the neck's tension by 1/2 turn.) I took away one star because the finish on the cedar top by the bridge is marred, an imperfection that looks sorta like a hand. It is visible when you look at it at an angle. It wasn't bad enough to convince me to return it. There is too much to like - it's singing quality, intonation, good volume and good looks.
I prefer my cheaper M. Kelly tone and projection, even if it might not record as nicely. I didn't bother returning it to the seller though looked into just re-selling it... I have my eye on some $1500 Martin i'll save up in the future for something I really love.
