Agree wholeheartedly. I play mostly acoustic in church, but when I go electric it's my tele or modded Epi Dot through a Tech21 Liverpool pedal. My congregation is older, and the Liverpool lets me mix up a clean tone with some thickness while still going straight through the board. Even if I could use a small amp (or even my big amp!) I want to sound my way rather than the bees-in-a-box sound, or the miming-guitar-since-it's-not-in-the-mix you're hearing more often now. Most people like that it sounds real and personal even if it's not just like the recordings, and those that don't like it don't tell me very often.
