I have a Palatino. It has been modified---Magnetic pick up put on---experimented with ways to make it more comfortable to hold to the body. It is now quite a 'presentable' sound--the guys seem to like it. I go through a G &K amp. The Bass sounds a cross between a Bass Guitar and an acoustic upright--but a bit more on the Bass Guitar side. My question to EUB players out there: what effect pedals to you use to get the sound you like?--to enhance the sound. I'm a Jazzer at heart.
