I suspect that this is just some perverse practical joke or possibly some sort of marketing exercise, and that there are probably posters that are “in” on the ruse, but sadly many well meaning TBer's have been sucked into becoming unwitting shills as well.
I suppose time will tell.
I "regrettably" posted that comment from the Acoustic Control website when it first appeared some time back. My bad. Let me explain:
I was one of the first few "endorsers" of the new "acoustic" some 3 years ago when George contacted me and explained his "vision". Sounded like a plan to me...
Problem was/is is that if I am going to play ANYONE'S equipment - I have to have
the equipment to take on the road (at that time I was touring quite a bit). Obviously, as much of a fan as I am of Acoustic amps and cabs, I simply could not wait for the units to be ready for delivery. I contacted George and was taken off the list.
I then went with the new Ampeg Heritage gear and was one happy camper! That pretty much sums up my involvement with "acoustic" USA.
Would I personally like to see this be a huge success?? You bet!! I ALWAYS cheer for ANYONE who is willing to step out on a limb and go for it. Problem is, I believe that in this case - the limb is getting pretty weak....
This has been going on for quite some time with HUGE investments in capital with little or no return. My limited business acqumin wonders how anyone could continue like this without a measure of success? Frankly, I don't have a clue. This is MY opinion and ONLY my opinion.
I have never once played, or even actually seen firsthand
one of the amps, but I am told by people that I trust that they are real and do, indeed exist.
however, seen the photos that float around out there of amps that were being tested:
Does this mean they actually exist and are ready for shipment? Again - I don't have a clue. The last rumor that I heard was that George was looking for a box company to provide shipping crates.
Will this ever be a reality? Again - you got me! I would, however, offer this advice to anyone who might be interested in purchasing one - proceed carefully. It might be a good idea to wait until they actually begin shipping, before actually going forward with an order.....just my opinion.
