Hi,

so I own a Takamine EAN10C guitar that I really love it plays great and has lowered action so it is very smooth for lead stuff (it is electro-acoustic, has a built in chromatic tuner)- see http://www.takamine.com/?fa=detail&mid=130&sid=62

and a seagull cedar GT 6 or some sort like that which has a wider neck and higher action which is great for chords / alternate tunings.

Now I have been contemplating moving to an all electric setup, but that would put me back about $2000, and I'm a poor college student so that is not a wise decision.

However I have been browsing craigslist in my area and found this:

It's a Fender Acoustasonic Junior DSP, and I have a chance to buy it at $400.

So my question is what do you guys think of this setup? I do not plan on gigging with it, never have, eventually maybe use it at a coffee short with another guitarist (which is why the 2 channels is great) or using the mic input for doing my own stuff.

And do you think $400 is a good price?

Thanks for reading and possibly giving a response!

hmm, if you dont plan on gigging, then theres not as much point except for your own personal enjoyment. the price should be alright. the question is more do you really want to buy it?

yeah i think it would really cool- i only have a little 15W solid state amp right now that I bought with a squire guitar when i first started playing. Just wanted to see if there were any reasons not to go ahead.

yea, i actually wouldnt mind buying an acoustic amp myself. i dont really go gigging, but there are times when i need to use it for church. Also, it's easier to hear myself play fingerstyle with an amp. i dont have to play as hard to get the volume i want.

Surely you don't mean this, but, just in case you are... getting an amp for your acoustic is not a substitution for a pure electric setup, not the same thing.

Otherwise I think it's fine. There may be some better deals out there though. For example, I just bought a used Crate CA-125 that is pretty similar except it's got 3 amps, 3 inputs, and more power, and I got it from a music store for $300. It also retailed for like $750. Buying from an individual should have been even cheaper.

If you had the money, I'd say look at the L.R. Baggs new amp, but it's supposed to be $1,200. You could probably get it for $1,000 or a little less though. Most all acoustic amps are very directional for the tweeter but this one isn't.
