I'm looking for one between 200 and 500 euros although you can tell me the price in dollars or pounds)
Does anyone own one or has tried one ?
If yes, could you tell me about it ?

Do you mean like an acoustic bass guitar with a pickup?
i had an ibanez one that i got for like 300 dollars.
i had it for like 6 or 7 years and it never did me wrong!
i never really used the pickup though since my electric basses sounded alot better through my amp.
but it's great to practice with (if you're not trying to wake up the neighbors)
And since it was bigger than my electrics, when i played the acoustic,
it made playing on my electrics alot easier.
Fender Kingman or Fender T Bucket. great electro acoustic basses with superb fishman electronics. both well within your budget.

I work witha dude who swearsthe Dean acoustics are really sweet sounding. He says they can be had for under $200.00, which from what I have seen is somewhat of a price benchmark.

If I buy one I'm mostly gonna play acoustic but it's nice to be able to plug it once in a while

i'm not the biggest musicians friend fan so i would recomend looking at different places.
but you can't beat the price they're offering. (from what i looked at.)

I think that's exactly what you're looking for!
I had pretty much the same one for years and years and it was great!
I didn't even take great care of it so if you're nice to it you could get some serious milage out of it!
