Or is it just a waste of space? Im an avid blues guitarist and I love getting down on the electric, as well as my acoustic of course. Does anyone else haul around their electric gear?

Just get a piezo pickup for your acoustic and enjoy the best of both worlds. You can get a decent one online for $10 or so. You can get a little 9v belt amp for extreme portability and maximum flexibility.

A piezo isnt gonna cut it for a serious electric blue player. Thats all i need to say.
He isn't a serious "electric" blues player, though, he clearly said he does both electric and acoustic, so I assume he wants both capabilities, and we aren't necessarily talking "serious" electric gear, we're talking what's affordable and practical to bring with you on the road. Rubbertramping around with fancy electric music gear is begging for your vehicle to be broken into and robbed.

I have a hollowbody ibenez artcore and use a Honeytone mini amp. Other than having to spend or 5 finger some 9v batteries, it works awesome. However i do plan to grab my 50 watt amp that i let a buddy borrow when i make my way over to visit the city of scum... I mean Angels

5 finger some batteries - they make all kinds of cheap solar panels now days - (not my schtick, but I know ppls who have done such) - I'd look into solar powering that amp... Even build-buy a battery storage for night time play... Just a suggestion.... & Chances are there's gotta be a thread on here somewhere about solar conversions

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
