    I'm considering purchasing a B3. I primarily play bass in my church's band but sometimes I play acoustic guitar.

    Has anyone used the B3 for acoustic? Does it work well for this instrument?

    I guess it depends what you want it to do. It'll act as a DI box, and the reverb, delay and modulation effects should work (most seem to be common between the guitar and bass units). Drive or bass amp/preamp sims for an acoustic guitar? Not so much.

    Actually, it does have at least one amp sim that would work well for acoustic guitar...the Avalon U5 model. There are pre-set eq curves for different instruments, including acoustic guitar.

    Try the DI 5 Avalon model or any number of the eq's and preamps. I find the Fliptop model sounds great with my hollow body guitar.
