I have not seen one in person. Yamaha has a line of TransAcoustic guitars with a similar type of built-in amp/effect unit, in steel string and nylon string models. I would be interested to see what one of those ToneWood amps sounds like on a 12-string.

Yeah, not sure why you would put one in a Martin, it is already an acoustic cannon, but cool to have some of those built-in effects when not even plugged in to an amp.

They call it an amp but unless you take a line out to an amp or pa etc it isn't any louder than your guitar unplugged. Its the reverb action that really gets me and the delay and leslie!

You didn’t like it? Sound like crap or just odd coming from where it does?
didnt sound like crap and it added to the acoustic players experience.... but for my paradigm; I have nice acoustic pickups running into $250 acoustic preamp to tavo pedals then split to an amp w an 8" and 12" spkr out to house 15" cabs when I play live. At home, its my J100xtra unplugged to my ear :) YMMV

ordered my son a birthday present from Sweetwater and talked with my rep somehow he sweetens the deal a little and one of these wound up on its way as well. I’m going to gamble that I’ll like it and that it will work with the K&K pickup in my 000.

Mine lives on a 12 and it sounds beautiful.

Hm this to a Mystery Brainand or Jr Barnyard might be something I need to try. @TV the Wired Turtle how well with those two pedals work going into my K10? I haven’t tried that. The Martin actually sounds real good going direct in.
I keep the Jr Barnyard on w the acoustic, w bass mode on, treble cut on, no preboost, just output volume up and the reverb on shallow. The MB echo is on dialed into a deluxe memory man setting, but not real wet. I kick on the dyno for some rise over the drums in choruses and solos

I’m pretty sure most of did at one time or other. :)
Either I’m getting old or I’m just not buying that whole play like a god but look like a homeless guy schtick anymore.
I just stepped into the next age bracket with my work boot purchase. Aluminum toes, Electrica hazard but no strings! I could have used a triple EEE, my feet aren’t’ long but and spread out like flippers!

aahhhh… the envy of all :p
At the time yes, today I have no idea but we will see because I have three pairs of 501's starting down the threaded path and I will not stop wearing them until they are so bad I could get arrested for exposure. For the cost of those jeans when I bought them I will eek every last cent of life out of them. These three pairs are going on ten years, the only three pair of jeans I have. So at around 50$ a pair over ten years I think I will get my moneys worth out of them!
