The other night, in addition to trying out a Traben, I happened upon an acoustic bass. This was the first one I had ever seen in person. I don't remember the name on it now, but I did take a few minutes to pluck around on it. It definitely sounded bassier than other acoustics I have picked up. This particular model had a pickup so you could amp it. That is probably standard? Anywho, it had a nice sound.
