interesting concept- the unit, a sensor/amp/vibrator sticks the back of your acoustic (using magnets placed inside your ax), senses what you're playing, adds reverb, chorus or what ever and vibrates the back of you guitar to mix with the wooden tones coming out. supposedly without feedback. Obviously only for living room use...

Youtube videos look good, but I'm just wondering if anybody has played with this in real life.

for real?

I've had one for a few years now. It does work really well.

What I've found is it's really great if you get together with friends and play unamplified acoustics, because it introduces a dimension of tone that prevents you from getting lost in the mix.

It doesn't necessarily make your guitar louder; it simply adds dimension to the sound.

Some of the effects have a tweak range that takes them into the realm of the ridiculous tho, and they sound pretty horrendous.

Used sparingly, though,the sound is pretty dang good. It takes a while to get used to reverb, delay, chorus, etc., coming out of the sound hole. The delay is particularly good.

If you do decide to get one, invest in some AA Lithium rechargeables because batteries are expensive. The cheepies I bought (with the charger) are still going strong after more than two years.

Note that it works only with a guitar that already has a pickup system installed. You have to run a short cable (included) from your guitar's output jack to the unit's input.

Also, this is not just for home playing, because it has a line out. You can plug this directly into a mixer, soundboard, or even a guitar amp set to make clean tone, and the sound quality is really good.
