    Hey all, I found a way to place a Tonewood Amp inside my 5420T. Didn't know how well it would work because of the arched back, but I found a spot to mount it that worked well. This thing is dope, playing on the couch will be way more fun!

    Cool stuff. Thanks for sharing. One of my current projects is to put a reverb pedal inside a Jazzmaster. Built in Tonewood Amp is a great idea.

    I have toyed with the idea of getting one of these to add reverb to one of my acoustics, but I always end up deciding it's too expensive for that (and I would never use the other settings.). You are probably the first person ever to put in inside an archtop!

    I'm definitely gonna have to try this again with some fresh batteries. Maybe I'll actually take off one of the suction layers for some better stick. Maybe more pronounced bounce?

    Maybe I should actually mic it rather than use a phone camera

    I'd love to hear some rockabilly licks using slapback echo...

    If you were considering getting it, I'd definitely recommend it! Bring the Goth Gang for a Rumble; Rebel Rousers welcome too!
