I'm too late as you've already made the purchase. But I do have some help for anyone else looking for something to play southern gospel in church settings. I learned years ago that winter months (where it gets cold) require more volume as the audience will be bundled up and all that material absorbs sound. If you get enough volume in the winter you'll have plenty in the summer. Also, the bass player for the gospel group who have been playing at Dollywood for over 20 years is playing a 6-string Conklin through the MB115 for his on-stage sound. Heard them in Orlando and the bass sounded fine.
