Hi there everyone. Been gathering great, useful info from you guys for a while now but this is my first post. Been playing an 80's Meinal (German) plywood for nearly 6 years now and it's time to move on. I seem to be playing small unamplified jazzy gigs these days with just acoustic guitar and upright piano. Was thinking of an UB deluxe. Is it true these basses have above average acoustic volume? Also, I've been playing the Meinal with Spiro's but I intend switcing to Lenzner guts (wrapped E & A) for a more trad tone. Will I notice much difference in volume? Hope you can help!
