I rented one and it had some buzzing on the D string, but L&M fixed it. I decided to buy one, and it had a buzzing G string. L&M fixed that too, but the output from the pickup is uneven between the strings. It?s pretty good acoustically, with a full scale neck and huge body. It feels like a real bass. Amplified, I had no feedback issues at performance volume, but it just doesn?t cut through the mix despite fiddling with the tone controls. The mix was piano, acoustic guitar, mandolin, drums and three vocals. It?s okay for jamming, I guess, but not performing live through either backline or FOH amplification.

I picked this up for two reasons. First I needed an acoustic bass for a high school classical guitar ensemble that I teach. Second, I play in an acoustic folk trio with guitar and mandolin. For both purposes this bass works well as an acoustic instrument, holding its own and producing nice sound. It does need a FIRM pluck to bring out its voice, but once you get the feel of it, it's awesome. You will have to rely on other reviews for its amplified performance... I haven't even plugged it in yet. Note that I tried some other big - name brand ABGs and found them all lacking in the acoustic department... Basically they were more hollow body electrics than anything else. The Denver name is associated with really cheap entry level instruments so I was a bit leery of this one at first, but it's well put together and finished, and I am very satisfied that it's a good instrument. If you want to play an acoustic bass, this is a good choice.

Picked it up on a whim for a celtic show. Performed flawlessly!! Seriously good bang for your buck! Since used for several acoustics shows. Very versatile and adjustable in terms of sound with the onboard EQ.

We use this bass in a college music club and it held abuse until the neck started bending. Got it fixed and now it sound as good if not better than before.

Picked this up a couple of months ago and really like it, seems really well put together. I really like Fishman acoustic products and it has a Fishman pre-amp/tuner built in. Has more of a Hoffman vibe than a P-bass vibe but that is to be expected as it is an acoustic bass. Nice straight neck, good action and light and comfortable for such a big guitar. Great value, get one while you can!
