The new Fender Acoustasonic™ 100 acoustic guitar combo amp is perfect for the acoustic guitarist who needs a light, loud, versatile, and flexible amp loaded with tonal innovations and useful features.
The Acoustasonic 100 combo packs full acoustic resonance and crystal clarity into a lightweight (only 18 lb.) amp with a new ultra-efficient 100-watt power amp, 8” foam-surround low-frequency neodymium driver, and high-frequency tweeter. Its new Voicing control lets any guitar simulate the tonality of parlor, dreadnought, and jumbo acoustics. Or, Voicing can be turned off for pure amp output response. For acoustic players who double on electric guitar, the Voicing control also has Blackface, tweed, and British amp settings, which makes a second amp just for electric guitar unnecessary.
Other features include instrument and microphone channels with independent EQ and effects controls; new feedback elimination control with on/off switch for each channel; patented String Dynamics™ control that tames harsh treble notes; effects including reverb, delay, chorus, Vibratone, and more; XLR line out with level control and ground lift; USB connector for digital recording output (and possible future firmware updates); built-in kickstand for tilt-back positioning, strong five-ply hardwood construction; and optional two-button effects-select footswitch.

This is a brand new product and I only had it a few days before I returned it because the combo xlr/1/4" mic jack was faulty. Let me give you my first impressions. I like to play both electric and acoustic style music mostly with friends in restaurants and bars around town. I was looking for an amp that would give me both guitar and vocal input, yet deliver some electric blues sounds. I've only found 2 such amps, the line 6 spider jam and this one. The Spider Jam has many more bells and whistles than the Fender, but it's a little complicated to use live. So I decided to try the fender. Features: Separate guitar and vocal inputs and adjustments. What sets this Fender apart from other acoustic amps is the added electric guitar modeling; blackface, tweed and british (Vox). They sound good too, although the Vox is a little dirty. There are many more variations on the acoustic side. And everything seems to be pretty easy to use with the twist of a dial. There are a lot of special effects such as chorus and reverb and the level is easily controlled with a sepatate adjustment. And it all comes in a very lightweight package. Non features: Well, there are so many that I have to wonder what Fender was (or wasn't) thinking. For the same basic money as the Spider Jam you don't get 1) A tuner 2) A headphone out for quiet practice 3) An effects loop 4) A line in for playing with CD's 5) A very big speaker. Quality: Like I said, I had to return it almost immediately Look & Feel: I loved the lightweight. The downside is that you get an 8" speaker driven by 100 watts. Seems a little overkill, yet even though its 25 more watts than the Spider Jam it doesn't sound very loud. I'm hoping it was the mic input problem, but the vocals seemed to brassy to me and lacked bottom end fullness.
