    I have an old 60's Kimberly Hofner-copy (hollow body) violin bass whose electronics/pu's have long since passed away...

    Anyway, upon taking out all the electronics and restringing it I found it had an awesome "acoustic" tone...although it is pretty quiet compared to a regular ABG

    Right now the "soundholes" are the places where the pickups and the electronics were

    Anyidea how I could boost the volume of this Frankenbass? I do plan on adding an acoustic bass pickup (either a piezo of my own design, or, perhaps one of Bob Gollihur's), but for now I'm just looking to increase its projection for acoustic playing

    Any input wil be graciously received
