I have a chance to pick up a Fender Acoustasonic Amp. The one at the bottom of the page here. The Acoustasonic Jr. DSP:

Anyone have any experience with this? It's been discontinued. The one I'm looking at is like new.

Well i've had three acoustasonics. I love them! They beat any other acoustic amp hands down and I've owned most of them - AERs Carlsboros, Marshall.

Depends a lot what you do which one to get. De[ends on your use for it.

For what its worth - I'd say get one of the new generation. I play in noisy pubs - or at any rate I used to. Shitloads of power and I paid less than £320 for it - - !50 watts. The sound isn't as good as the old SFX but its as heavy as washing machine. The new ones are a mere 20lbs.

If you have quiet audiences you will find DSP adequate.   I saw Tristan Seune play Eric Roche's memorial concert with one in the small theatre in Sleaford. But the new ones are lighter and have more power.

I love them! I play the SFX at home. But I gig with one of the new ones.

I've had an Acoustasonic Jr. for around 15 years. I'm pretty pleased with it. I've used it for both acoustic and electric guitars (when I've wanted a really clean electric sound), and even sang through it in a pinch. The only acoustic amp I've ever played through which sounded appreciably better was an SWR California Blonde, which costs three times as much.
