    I have a Tobias 5 string(549 @ musicyo.com.) Like most acoustics it is not that loud without an amp. With roundwound strings there is a lot of finger noise and fret clack. I use tapewound strings and I am able to get the psuedo upright feel I was looking for(through an amp.)Mine is well made, but if I had a choice I would get one without a lacquer finish. I feel that it mutes the body and probably kills some natural volume.
