New Acoustic or Bass + Bass POD XT?

Help me! (I have no idea which forum to put this into, this one should be okay.)

I've been upgrading my recording setup recently, and have pretty much everything I need in terms of hardware and electric guitars, but I'm still missing a decent acoustic and a bass (at the moment I use my keyboard for bass).

I've got a bit of money (read: student loan, I feel guilty ) to spend on either a 7 String 'Fusion' Acoustic by Emerald Guitars ( which Is about 555 minus shipping, or a Peavey Cirrus BXP 5 string bass and Bass POD XT which comes to just over 600 together.

I've just begun a popular music degree at Uni and I can see the acoustic coming in handy for ensemble performances and what not (at the moment I only have electric guitars) although I would like to learn how to play bass, and it'd definately be useful for recording.

What would you do?

Re: New Acoustic or Bass + Bass POD XT?

tough call - sounds like you need both :-)

either get the one you need first, look for used versions and get both.

or you could think about using credit and get both, but that's a poath to the dark side ;-)
