My SIL plays and acoustic guitar. I got her a Dean Markley pop-in pick-up so she can play with us. I plug her into my Peavey 258 and she sounds good to me.

When we have gone to various music stores and tell them we are looking for an inexpensive amp, the all say, "no-no-no, you must have an acoustic amp that costs twice as much." Then they plug in a decent A/E guitar off the wall, and wow-it sure does sound sweet!

My problem is that she does not have an A/E, she has a pop-in. Will that sound as good as and A/E in the store? Is it worth twice the price?

Is there that much difference between electric and acoustic amps?
