Re: OT: Small/Light Acoustic Guitar Amps

Yes, that was my good buddie that wrote the review of my CD "Live at the 
Kulture Klatsch", which I disputed with him on line. :) ....great blues 
guitarist nonetheless!  His name is.....Larry Conklin. I think Old Boise 
Guitar here can get those AERs.

I'll check out your leads below....that David amp was sure nice this 
morning, though...very tiny..about 10" by 10" by 9" or so...HUGE sound, a 
swiss amp built like a tank.
