    CAD Paisley Case Amp?

    Ya know what would be really cool? If I sent Doug Sewell my extra Paisley case and had him convert it into something like this.

    Sears used to offer a guitar and amp/case combination back in the 50s and 60s. Lots of folks had them, and you can still find them around. I remember them well.

    They had a sound a lot like a bad table radio, and were utterly useless in a band context. They used car radio speakers. Awfulness in a suitcase. Acoustic guitars were a much better alternative.

    Great idea if you want some kind of curio, I suppose, but not something worth investing heavily in.

    Now I MUST have one! Sent an email to Mr. Sewell.

    Fellow forum member Russ has a few. I thought his sounded great for "bedroom" use.

    There are 2 models of these amp/guitar combos.
    This one is the lesser of the 2.... 1 PU guitar instead of the 2 PU.
    This amp has an input and vol. control. The better outfit amp has a tone control, and trem ( speed/intensity).
    It's a cool LITTLE amp that compares to a champ, harmony, supro, etc student amp.
    Open and close the case for a free effect!

    Maybe the guts from a Pignose could be stuffed into a case like this......
