I've run my acoustic through a keyboard amp that I use as a bass amp, and it sounds how I like it. I guess it's a matter of taste. It gives you a "fat" sound, if you will.

Apparently so. Makes sense I spose, a bass amp pushes the lower frequencies more, and a large amount of why an acoustic is so rich is because of the lower frequencies it has, so it gives a more accurate representation of 'coostic tone.

a bass amp has quite a flat frequency response compared with a normal guitar amp.

this means it reproduces the acoustic sounds more accurately. also, an acoustic amp would work well, somehting like a peavey kb/ac300.

how do those marshall handles compare tonewise to, say, mesa handles?

Well obviously, I was only choosing one example. I was saying how bass amps can be good for it, and since bass amps aren't exactly known for they're high frequencies then it has no relevance as it wasn't a criticism

I've plugged my Ibanez into a ****ty practice Hartke and it sounded sick.
