I am restructuring my gear and are considering a new amp setup. Since I use a Taylor T5 as my main guitar, with a Telecaster as a backup, and want to keep it as simple as possible, my current idea is to buy a nice acoustic amplifier (currently considering Fishman Loudbox, Vox AGA 70, Tanglewood T6 but are open to suggestions) and use a HD500(X) in front of it. By not using any amp model in my acoustic patches I believe I will have nice acoustic sounds from my guitar, but still be able to get the full Monty from the HD500 when I want to to. The portability of the acoustic amps don´t hurt either, and since most (all?)of them also have DI outputs I could use it straight into the board and use it as a monitor if the gig should need it.
I find it hard to believe no-one has tried this before, so are there anyone here with any experience or meaningful input?
