Does it give you a nice dirty sound with your Tele?

Anyway, I went back today and set up the Katana 50 and the Fishman Loudbox mini right next to each other in the acoustic room. Much to my surprise, as I really like the Fishman, I think the Boss amp sounded a little better. It was fuller and more robust! The fact that it costs $110 LESS and sounds great with my Tele makes it a no-brainer--the Boss is coming home with me.

Anyway, if you are looking for a budget acoustic amp like I was, don't overlook the Katana models that reside in the electric guitar amp section.
