Roland just started shipping the AC-33 Acoustic Chorus Guitar Amplifier. This cool gadget is world’s first battery powered amp built specifically for acoustic guitar.
With a 30-watt amp and 5 inch speakers, you’re not going to rock Knebworth with this thing. But if you’re trying to impress the college girls at the local coffee house with your re-interpretation of “Your Body is a Wonderland” or if you’re staking out a corner in the local subway station, then this baby is for you.
It uses eight AAA batteries if you’re not plugged into the wall, weighs only 10 pounds, and carries a street price of $558.50. At that price, you’ll have to accumulate a fair number dollar bills dropped into your guitar case, but hey, can you really put a price on coffeeshop immortality?
