I saw a thread on these from last year, but no one had any experience outside of a store test drive, and there were only a few posts. The features look similar to a Fishman Loudbox Mini but for less. I really don't need an acoustic amp; but the one I have is an old Ibanez with some issues and I wouldn't mind finding a new candidate if I get more into acoustic work. I've played through a Loudbox Mini and they are awesome. I just wondered if anyone could give some first-hand review of the Hartke ACR5. I wanted an Acoustic AG30 when they were still available. Played through one at GC in Shreveport and loved it, then they went on sale and I still didn't buy one. Now you can't get them new anymore. Go me.
